"Untitled" (Foxes On Azaleas)

Some Fox Trails in Virginia

This series of photographs is taken in and around Virginia, the place where I grew up. The title comes from a book written by my father’s ancestor about the lineage of the Fox family. For my own purpose, it acts as a metaphorical map of the rediscovered paths of my childhood home.


At the age of 34, I came back to Virginia to care for my mother, who died shortly after my return. As the last of my family passed, I turned my lens to the house in which I was raised as well as old friends and their new families.
