Artist’s Statement about “Two Sisters” In 1952, my grandfather began to lose his vision as a result of being wounded in WWII. Wanting to return to the place where he grew up, he found an unoccupied hill in a village in the Leningrad region of Russia, close to his brothers, sisters and numerous cousins. He took his house apart, log by log, and floated it down the Oyat River to its new location and reconstructed it. This house, with no running water or heat, is the place where my father and his siblings grew up, each moving to the big city after finishing school. Now, more than half a century later, the house still stands, occupied by two of my aunts in the warmer months. The women are in their seventies, but carry on the traditional way of life, chopping wood for heating the house, bringing water from the well and making their own clothes. Their close relationship in the absence of men has been a fascinating study in self-reliance, familial love and sibling rivalry. My memories of spending time with them as a child play a large role in the images I record now, following the rituals that have come down from several generations and which are becoming lost in much of Russia. My photographs of them are a meditation on aging, family and a sense of belonging. For information: (940) 898-2533 or
