Daniel W. Coburn: The Hereditary Estate
January 8 – February 26

My family history is haunted by instances of suicide, severe domestic violence, and substance abuse. Frustrated by the lack of images in my own family archive to document this series of tragedies, I set out to create a more potent and accurate supplement to the family album assembled by my parents. Using photographs made over the last decade, and altered, amateur photographs, I weave a family narrative that is simultaneously beautiful and terrifying. The people and landscapes that appear in these photographs become metaphors and symbols for a family that exists at the intersection of domestic duress and spirituality.
