Home Gardener Photo Project

As many American families locked down this spring, they turned to gardening as a home-based activity to give them purpose and hope. Whether one’s shovel first plunged earthwards in 2020, or a family has been gardening for many years, connecting with something steadying and universal has taken on new and urgent importance this year.

Statement of Intent

By capturing home gardens and the families who nurture them, my intention is to depict the sense of well-being created through the experience of gardening.

Having been born and raised in Cleveland, I wanted to focus the project close to home, to reinforce what’s beautiful about staying in one’s own backyard.
