Happy 100th birthday Aunt Fern!

In celebration of my great Aunt Fern (aka Dodie) who would've turned 100 today, I thought I'd share a few images from her early life along with images I captured of her in her 90s.

Fern Doris was born on July 3rd 1918 in Los Angeles, California
Dodie was 17 1/2 years old in the below photograph which was taken in San Jacinto, California
With her husband Frank
Dodie took great pride in her home and is seen here roofing it in 1979
Below are images from an early series titled Aunt Fern. Shortly after being the main caretaker for my father who passed away in 2010 from cancer, I once again was faced with a similar situation with my 92-year old Aunt Fern. This time around picking up my camera as a coping mechanism to help with the grief as well as documenting our time together and the process of preparing for death.
