Contemporary family life and contemporary fine art photography have changed these days due to technology, texting and Facebook. I’m proud to be included with the rest of the nearly 40 other great list of photographers and video makers who are part of the museum exhibition, “the kids are alright,” at the Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro, North Carolina running June 1 through August 18, 2013.

Some of the great list of artists included in the show are Ryan McGinley (who had huge group of work at the Frieze New York Art Fair), Janine Antoni, Catherine Opie, David Hilliard, Justine Kurland, Chris Verene, among others.

My photographs in the show explore psychological, intimate relations between couples.  I am interested in how people live as a couple today. I capture unguarded moments between people, and document them with unflinching clarity taken directly from daily life.

Alison Ferris, from the John Michael Kohler Arts Center, Sheboygan, Wisconsin, curated and organized the show.

“the kids are alright” features photography and time-based media by 38 established and emerging artists who sensitively reveal the current notion of family with poignancy and humor.

The show will be on view at the Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro, N.C., June 1–August 18, 2013, and travels to the  Addison Gallery of American Art, Andover, Mass., September 14, 2013–January 5, 2014.  It originated from the John Michael Kohler Arts Center, Sheboygan, Wisconsin.

The show was made possible through grants from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, the Ruth St. John and John Dunham West Foundation, a foundation that prefers anonymity, BMO Harris Bank, and the Frederic C. Kohler Charitable Trust.
