I am a storyteller. I am giving a voice to my family -- and others like them -- that live their lives silenced by social oppression. I was raised in a blue-collar household, living off the grid: lower income, no credit, mostly everything second hand, no central air, well water, and very few opportunities. I share my story through photography. I am making images of my lifelong home to share with others. Then, with text, I reveal memories from my past, as well as thoughts and impressions of my present. I photographed my family and my home as a method of analyzing who I am as a person today. The intimate images and revealing text scrutinize social class, the human condition, and the meaning of happiness. The text is handwritten, unscripted, internal, and spontaneous—inspired by the images and my memories.
