This series of photographic prints, The Christina Suite, is dedicated to my art school friend Christina Ramberg. Christina and I had our children within a few weeks of one another. These pictures are not about her, but were made at a time when she was repeatedly in my thoughts, during an extended, unremitting illness. Christina died in 1995, but I always will continue to think of her and her son Alex, and his father Phil Hanson, with great respect and fondness.

Christina Ramberg, a painter and quilter whose work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, was on the painting faculty of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She was among the noted Chicago Imagist painters.
