Infant Socks (#1-4). Lambda prints. 30x45 inches. 2014.
About the series:
The day before my son was born, there came a moment where I was folding clothes, freshly washed in preparation. I remember I got to the socks and just couldn't believe how utterly ridiculous they were; impossibly tiny and fine. After bringing my wife back from our appointment with the midwife, and with just half an hour before I had to run off to teach class, I snapped these photos in the studio; to capture that concept I had of this little person, a person I could barely imagine and yet seemed to know in total, just before they were born.
