Previously published individually in small editions, photographer Fred Hüning's intimate trilogy of works is combined here in a single book. In this way, the very personal images, poems and texts create a poignant family narrative that touches on universal themes: life and death, beauty and decay, beginnings and endings. Despite its nonlinear presentation, the three-part series is a reflection of the cyclical nature of our experience, as well as the shifts in perspective inherent as we pass through various phases in our lives. Hüning looks with intense honesty at the relationship between a man and a woman through the years and the mystery and wonder of their child.
