PHOTO

Documenting vulnerable family moments where the camera is not welcome, my photographic work teeters between the private familial space (Ma, Da, lil Bro, Sis and Me) vs. imaginary visions of fantastical adventures with objects from my community (Dioramas). Locational identity is explored throughout the urban prairies of Metro Detroit where my family has resided for 15 years. Post-industrial cities like Detroit become rural and urban simultaneously. My sister and I stand amongst miles of cornstalks and through the trees, we see skyscrapers on the horizon.
