“The Fruits of My Mother’s Labor” is a collection of photographs taken between 2016 and 2018 in and around the home of my parents on the Eastside of Saint Paul. Their 1960s rambler, one block from Lake Phalen, incapsulates their desire for the American dream. Those ideals were transferred to us, their children. These photographs attempt to speak to those dreams and desire.
