Backyard Bill | Families Project


So, I think I'm a bit late to the party in discovering Backyard Bill, however I've fallen fast and hard for the clean, simple, joyful aesthetic characteristic of his portraits - especially the photos in his Families Project.  After looking at these photos I realized its a bit rare nowadays to see young families, and even more rare to see young families doing well and happy.  It seems like often if young people are fortunate enough to have enough its resulting from lots of hard work that requires a certain amount of independence.  While I'm sure the families captured here have put in their own blood, sweat, and tears, its lovely to see their success in balancing family with fortune.
