Growing Up Pennsylvania Series

This is a new series of works on mylar based on kids growing up in Central Pennsylvania. The images are based on black and white photos I took as a photojournalist in the mid 1970’s but the kids are really timeless.  Most are based on images of children at what was a end-of-year, school field day. Children are playing carnival games, and participating in races. The swimmers are from a black and white images of children at an area swimming pool. I selected three girls from the numerous children in the photo who were engaged in the usual hair grooming that goes with swimming and being a teen or pre-teen.
