Couch Culture 16: Modern Family Portrait

This creative family decided they all needed to be on the couch with their various technologies. I just went with it for several reasons. It instantly occurred to me that this represents a fair portion of the population these days and the way mother, sons and daughter-in-law squeezed themselves onto the couch with an extra dollop on top shows their wacky, creative personalities. I just thought… yup, this feels right.

Rather than showing them each in their own wi-fi worlds, I felt that this particular shot spoke to their lovingly enmeshed relationship. Their technology might be an extra appendage, but that doesn’t stop them from interacting and connecting. Who knows, maybe this is the norm and all is not lost.
