Nancy Nolan, Photographer


Nancy Nolan's celebrated photographic series "Parks Pants" is a brilliant and poignant meditation on the life and growth of both her oldest child, Park, and her own path as an artist and mother. Photographing her child once a year in a pair of his fathers' jeans, the infant Park is swamped – sweetly – in the iconic bit of clothing, and then slowly grows up -- and into -- them. A collaboration between filmmaker and photographer Dave Anderson and Nolan, this short documentary traces the series; its beginnings, inspirations and many undertones, which make it at once so singular and so universal.
