Roofers and Painters (2013)

The Roofers and The Painters is a project of documentary photographs that follow members of my family working in construction jobs in different parts of Texas. About half of the images were shot in affluent suburban Dallas-Fort Worth neighborhoods, where my brother and a group of migrant, transient men work as roofers. The latter portion shadows my parents, the painters, in gas-giant Odessa-Midland.
