My grandfather died Oct. 1997, and we held a wake for him on a catamaran boat in the Gulf. There are a lot of mixed feelings about him in my family, and in myself. I've been wanting to make a page about him-or at least the surface of him-for a long time.


The photograph was originally taken with my Canon AE-1 Program with film, then hand-printed by me when I was in school. It's one of my best portraits.
