14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
In recent years I have observed as my parents' marriage has struggled. As this challenging dynamic has developed I have witnessed a direct impact on my father. This fall I took it upon myself to begin documenting their relationship through portraiture when I visit them. The focus of this image pertains to my father's numbness and internalized emotional battle.
