I love black and white photos, especially of the characters in my family.
When I had kids, it became even more important to have a space that grounded our family and helps us talk about where we're from and what that means to us.
I chose to use black frames over black and white photos, to let the subjects tell the story. We have some interesting lineage including an Irish ship builder that worked on the Titanic and a Todd Shipyard union leader and WWII vet.
As you can see, I lined the frames up on the floor first and moved them around until they felt balanced.
I'm finished with the photos I have for now, but I'll be adding to my collection, as family and life is a work in progress.
I make stuff and put it in my house, on my kids or out in the garden. Here are some of my projects.
