Diners Politely Ignore the Child Experimenting with being the Infared Zombie Child at Play

Digital photo with post processing
2005

On the series: These portraits were more collaborative efforts with my young son, than my simply taking pictures of him. He would prepare a situation and would ask that a picture be taken, which is how the series began. He wanted to see how what he'd dreamed up looked like through the eye of the camera, and enjoyed having it preserved--probably like most children. Then when I was working on a picture in post production I would ask him what he thought as we both conjured a photo befitting his dream.

On this photo: One never knows when the urge to become a zombie will arise. This time, we were in the middle of breakfasting at a diner when the compulsion struck.
