top "Working on the Railroad", from series "Love and War"

My father served as a railroad transit officer in the US Army during World War Two. While stationed in Namur Belgium, he and his company transported goods, weapons, and sometimes liberated prisoners from Nazi camps. Through it all he took numerous photographs and wrote letters home to my mother (who was pregnant with my oldest brother). After they past, I inherited my parents photo archives, which included these images and letters. I have created montages whose titles usually come from notes on the back of photos dad sent home to mom. Most of the imagery is of post-war devastation in Europe, but the tone of his writing is unusually positive and full of love, leading to the title for the series, "Love and War"
