Pallbearer is a portrait of my husband’s grandfather dressed for a funeral in Staten Island, New York. Like many fathers in his Italian immigrant community, he had to bury a son who had died near the country he escaped. The photograph documents the emotional turmoil of war that extends beyond a battlefield. Using portraits of family members provides me with an immediate subtext that is rich with inspiration.
