Every summer throughout their childhood on a farm in Vermont, my nieces, nephew and I would collaborate on creating photographs that would reflect who they were at that time.
Photographing with an Al-Vista Model 5D panoramic camera that had belonged to my great-grandfather created a cross-generational link. Something from the past was being used to record the present so that future generations would have a visual reference to what would be their own past.
