WHERE THE RED FLOWERS BLOOM
A Family of Complicated Bodies is a long term photography project (2016-2023) exploring the complexities of family relationships when each member of the family manages different chronic illness. This project is created in collaboration with my family, who has generously allowed me to document intimate moments of illness and hardship alongside family joy and resilience to disrupt narratives around health that demand a linear overcoming of illness.
A Family of Complicated Bodies began as an undergradute thesis at Ringling College of Art and Design, and was exhibited at the college in 2018. Thesis development was generously funded by the Student Development Grant of Ringling College of Art and Design.
