17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Never wake the American dreamer

Shot on 35mm film, this is one of my favorite photos. The more you look at it the more layers that reveal themselves. From the blurry child representing how fast they grow up mixed with the quote in the back it gives you a sense of time moving in slow motion but also a reminder to love the small things in life while you can. the shadow that is seemingly painted on the pallet as well. looking back on this and seeing my nephew now, it hits home even more. home is family anywhere you are.
