In the summer of 2005, at the age of 17, my younger brother weighed 415lbs. The same summer he underwent gastric bypass surgery at a time when the fairly new procedure wasn't commonly being performed on teens. During the first year of his rapid weight loss, I photographed him using a 4x5 view camera every month near our family home. As he has grown, the photographs have changed with him. This is an on going project.
