to my beloved father


The Cycle of Life Series, Image 13: “Beloved Father”

“the window of your face
blew wide open
to meet eternity
we are all only light”

My mother commissioned this photomontage in 2015. I created it in consideration with her in memory of my father, her husband of 45 years. He died in 2012. He suffered ALS for two and a half years. The photos were taken at the Chiemsee in Germany, a lake where my family spent many beautiful hours together. I photographed my father’s reflection in the water when he was already ill. I was fully awareness at that excruciating moment that there will not be many more reflections in water of his form to photograph.
