WE HAD A BABY LAST YEAR. Our son Charlie appears in this book. But this book is not about Charlie. It is about Melanie. And, if photographs tell the story of their maker, I suppose it is about me as well. We are both photographers, Melanie and I. In his introduction to the book, Eric Kroll observes about us: "There is a patina, a soul to their young life together, that is held together by film." This book documents through the camera's mediation an extraordinary moment in our lives together.
