ResemblanceThe need to recognize a resemblance between a stranger and myself was more than just a fascination. I soon formed my own narratives of why some women I saw briefly could be my birth mother and how we may have resembled each other. Resemblance is a way into studying the human face and the relationships it forms through the existence or lack of physical 'likeness'. By crossing the boundaries of biological relations, I explore the parent-child relationship within the adoptive setting. This project begins to question the need to see resemblance even though it may not exist -is my mind playing tricks on me? I met and photographed families who helped me to create a new visibility of resemblance.
