Family Ties (needs editing)
David Pollack, born March 9, 1979, in Hartford, CT. adopted at the age of seven months to a loving family in Monroe, CT. But for the first seven months was abused by a foster family who was using the foster system to make money. fed Kool-Aid and kept in a dark closet on the ground, never picked up. When adoptive parents finally got me I was catatonic. They didn't know whether I would ever emerge from this state. Eventually I did becoming a very outgoing artist and actor. I've begun using the ideas that the injustices I was dealt as a baby from the social system I was a part of are felt by many and I'm exploring that with my current series of photographs.
