STATEMENT: This series of photographic prints, The Christina Suite, is dedicated to my art school friend Christina Ramberg. Christina and I had our children within a few weeks of one another. These pictures are not about her, but were made at a time when she was repeatedly in my thoughts, during an extended, unremitting illness. Christina died in 1995.
