I photograph contemporary American family histories through the daily lives of my own family, playing on the inherent voyeuristic nature of human society. By exposing our private, unsightly, and painful moments to the viewer, I offer entrance to one’s own family life via the conduit of my loved ones. The American obsession with the notion of an ideal family leads to a fascination with the necessary and painful dysfunctions which make that ideal unattainable. Set against the backdrop of my Ohio home, this life-long series spanning nearly a decade follows my family through every move and change.
Each wrinkle, each heavy sigh, each confident stare into the lens contained in these images is suggestive of the undercurrent of an American family moving through joys and tragedies. These are not perfect images, nor perfect moments. They are the in-between, the almost there, the awkward, the joyful. These are the moments not discussed but not uncommon. They show the connections we share while fulfilling our need to know and be known, to see and be seen.

Everything arrives is a line from a Reinaldo Arenas poem “The Parade Ends”. Arenas describes the streets of Havana with cold harshness; a reality that is oppressive. Where free will seems unattainable, Finally, “Everything Arrives” and he is able to exercise his agency in the simplest of ways; he mentally frees himself from his physical present state and elevates himself to a world of “incessant jingling”. Here, in this state, he floats. Everything is open. Nothing is closed.
