"Don't Smile, Smile is an image from my most recent body of work SHINY GHOST, a photographic series dealing with the fading character of my Grandmother due to a degenerative brain disease that quickly claimed her life. The image deals with ideas surrounding identity within pictures, specifically, the ubiquitous studio portrait most of us possess in some form. The two pictures in the image speak towards truth and artifice, beauty and age, life and death. The photograph simultaneously epitomizes her glamour while also freezing it in two distinct representations, reminding us of our own mortality. "
