Moses is a triptych made from found imagery. A while back I found a strip of photos sitting in a photo booth, left by the previous user. I was bothered by the fact that the previous users were in fact two parents with their newborn. I scanned in these photos and clipped only the face of their child.
I chose to focus on the child's face as his expression wasn't forced, even if his place in the photo was. The name Moses is used because in a sense the parents left the child for whoever found him next by leaving their photos in a photo booth.
