About ‘Fault Line’:

Fault Line is a project I am doing in the small coastal town of Brooklin, Maine. The protagonist is my younger cousin Adam, who lives there. I also photograph my brother, father, and other cousins. I chose the title because a fault line alludes to where the earth splits in an earthquake (a metaphor for a divided family with a complicated history) and also alludes to a fault, or blame (I wonder, how does a family support each other, even when things aren’t perfect?)

My goal is to show the weight we all carry and how we are both connected and isolated from each other.
