Mike Sketch Series: Mom Saying Goodbye to Mike April 1993

I spent more than 25 years exploring, and documenting the life of my brother Mike*.  Fifteen years of that process was devoted to photographing him, his activities associated with his group home, day school and parties.  I was a novice photographer at the start of this project. Much of my emphasis was on capturing moments, the dynamics between Mike and other members of my family.  The photographic reference for the sketch below was blurry and grainy (as were many of my early shots), but the moment was preserved and the photo allowed me to interpret it through the process of sketching.
