Teacup Secrets pairs photographs of my mother’s antique teacup collection with old family photos and snapshots to explore the tragedy, joy, and triumph of family. Each image is accompanied by a story. The full series contains 19 images.
Limited edition prints are available by contacting the photographer directly. You can order the book in either the original hard cover edition, or an updated soft cover edition on Blurb.
