Perhaps I'm homesick. I know my bi-annual ventures to my home state (3000 miles away) always involve me opening up my past or taking a closer look at what should feel familiar; those closest to me and their environments. These photographers turn to family to make their work. I enjoy the ways in which they investigate and find meaning through the camera, perhaps seeking their own definitions of the word or concept: family.
