Undoubtedly, it is an extensive fine art project. The work is panoramic, darkroom, color negative. Its working title is Family, Etc. In it, Angela brings intimate details into cinematic scale. She says: “While photographing pro work: advertising, editorial jobs and NYC wedding photography I’d turn the camera on my own family. I’d shoot it, process the film and make proofs. And then I’d leave it. After a fashion, though, I began making prints. Once I edited the stacks of contact sheets, I was charmed by how photogenic my family is.
Without a doubt, they became something for me to examine. They hold my permanent interest. So, my family is used to a camera being in the room with them when I’m there. Needless to say, they still do things I like to photograph. So some are familiar, and some the fresh.”
