I recently acquired a wedding album, dating from 1987. Looking through the pages, I imagined all the stories hidden within the pictures. I imagine that a wedding has to be one of the most important days of your life. At least it must seem that way while it's happening. I see the camera man as the silent observer, capturing all these special moments. There is no way to know what was really being thought in each of the pictures, one can only imagine.
I selected the pictures that I felt were more expressive. I photocopied them, then thought of the captions later. I combined the images into two different 8-page books. I call this series 'The Wedding'.

Having always loved music, I decided to do some pieces focusing on lyrics from a band. I chose my friend's band Wonderground. I heard their record repeatedly and wrote down lyrics that caught my attention. The lyrics are quite poetic, so it wasn't hard finding lyrics that I could use. The hard part came in finding lyrics that were short enough to fit with a picture. I wanted to create a story with each lyric and picture combined.

It's a quite Sunday morning, just the way I like them. I normally don't consider myself a morning person, but there's something about a quiet morning that brings peace to my life. A time to ponder on the dreams of the previous night, and to create some new dreams of your own.
