On View @ Zarrow: The Hereditary Estate

From artist Daniel W. Coburn:

"For the past decade I have made photographs to critically examine the family photo album as part of a visual infrastructure that supports the ideology of the American Dream.

As I grew to adulthood my parents began to reveal the details of a dark family history—the evidence of which, had been hidden away in the shadowy corners of our family sanctuary.

Frustrated by the lack of photographs in own my family archive to successfully describe this troubling narrative, I set out to create a potent amendment to the idealized album assembled by my family members.  I photograph friends and loved ones in parables of love, reverie, respect, and quiet tragedy.  I make these images in an attempt to honor our relationships and remain true to our history."
