I don’t know why it takes so long to get a new Mixed Race Project feature up (no, scratch that…I do know why), but I’m excited to introduce Leslie & Hank’s family from Long Beach, California. I was particularly excited to have the opportunity to photograph a family with older kids while we were out in LA earlier this year and both Leslie and Hank were so thoughtful with their interview questions. I hope you enjoy their feature as much I had the pleasure of meeting them.
Every time I publish a new family, it gives me renewed energy for the project. I may not have the time to devote to it as I’d like and it may take forever to get a new family feature up, but going through the photos and reading through the written interviews gives it a renewed purpose and reminds me why I started the project in the first place. As we do every year, we’ll be out in the Pacific Northwest this August. If you live in Portland or Olympia (
I think we have Seattle covered! I may still be looking for a Seattle family) and would be interested in participating in the Mixed Race Project, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
