‘BBQ’ is the lead image of the series and deals with the idea of the dopey dad who’s passed out with a beer. Having three kids, I’m constantly dealing with my own perception of the dopey dad stereotype, whether or not it’s true, or with other people’s conversations about it, which you hear a lot once you start having kids. There’s always a conversation about the husband or the dopey dad. I like this picture a lot, although I’m not entirely sure why. I think because it captures a part of me that I’m afraid of, but it’s also not representative of who I am, so it feels the most silly.
‘Are We There Yet?’ is on exhibit at the Williston Northampton School’s Grubbs Gallery in Easthampton, Massachusetts, from November 2 until January 2, 2019.
