I’ve been photographing my family and the complex relationships that exist between myself and them, and within the structure of a family in general.  My family is fucking weird.  When I say weird, I mean, shrunken head weird.  I’ve never considered my family members as subjects for a project and I’m learning new things every day.  It’s been a real challenge trying to explain such things through photographs, and it’s been even more of a challenge to actually photography, particularly with my own inhibitions.  I’ve almost given up on assigning either a fine art project or a documentary project, it’s just a project.  The toughest challenge is showing the world what exactly my family is about.  Displaying images to even just a few people in a room and a veteran photographer makes me uncomfortable, but I’m managing.
