Still a Family
My project will consist of taking photographs to document the phenomenon of a single parent raising a large family and going to school at the same time. I intend to show how our life is different than the average family but also show how it is similar. I will include photographs of each of my 6 children that are still living at home as portraits, as well as capturing everyday life and what that consists of for us. My project will record the struggles, time constraints and benefits of having many children. It will bring light onto the single parent and the absence of the other parent. It will show the impact that going to school is having on our family. I will include as much of our daily life as is possible to make a comprehensive study into large single parent families. The photographs will be the main documentation of the project and will probably be made into a book or slide show to archive the project.
