Daniel W. Coburn's work and research investigates the family photo album employed as one component of a visual infrastructure that supports the flawed ideology of the American Dream. For the past decade he has made and sequenced photographs to weave a family narrative that is simultaneously beautiful and terrifying. His monograph, The Hereditary Estate, is an amendment to the family album. It is designed to puncture the illusion of the ideal family constructed by twentieth century visual culture.
