Basket Case

“My parents had brought me to a portrait studio, and apparently I didn’t want my picture taken. It was taken anyway, just with a surreal approach.”

Personal Best

“My family posed for this gem in December 1993. I was 10; my brothers were 8 and 13. My mother loved themed portraits and says now in her defense, ‘Track suits were really hot back then. Everyone wore them. People wore them to work.’ I guess everyone worked as sleazy personal trainers from the ’80s. Now I bust these fancy outfits out for costume parties and bar crawls.”
