I've always wanted to document my own family but for so many years school and work kept me photographing near home. I finally got to Michigan recently and photographed my grandparents and their home. They've been married for 54 years and have lived in their home since October 1956. After I got home I found a letter my grandmother put in my luggage.
In the note she said,
"As a young bride it was a goal - raise the kids, pay the mortgage, have a stable environment for the family. Now in the twilight of my life it has become a refuge - to shut out the fast changing world. A place that always stays the same."
