Distortions, glimmerings of other worlds, bubbles of expelled breath, weightless, floating apparitions; each are reasons I look forward to the beginning of swim season in the spring. Humans are complicated creatures with many sides to them and photographing my nieces, nephew and son in the backyard pool has been a perfect way to explore that. No one is all good or all bad. Both the hideous and the beautiful are revealed in this series, just like in life.

Each image is named for a Pearl Jam song, not only because I think the titles are fitting, but because Pearl Jam is the end all be all band in my humble opinion. Sadly I have yet to see them live.

These photographs are captured digitally and produced on Epson Hot Press Natural paper. They are limited edition prints.
