Peg-Peg / Grandmother
Raleigh, NC Commercial Photography
Photographer: Shane Deruise
I have been working on photographing my family as a personal project for about 3 years now. I have never really been close with any of them, and I feel like I need to make more of an effort to try and connect with them. Some, like Peg-Peg, I only get to see maybe once ever 4 to 5 months.
I think over the past year my extended family has accepted me into their loving arms, and slowly, very slowly… they have come to understand why a carry around a camera all the time.
