Family Tree is a series of portraits of immediate family members i.e. Father/Son, Mother/Daughter and even Father/Daughter, Mother/Son. Families are photographed individually and then sized and printed at the same proportions. The two photographs are manually torn and glued together to make one portrait investigating the visual DNA passed from generation to generation. No Photoshop.
