The Mixed Race Project: Meet Christine and Randy’s family

January 7, 2013 |  Category:   photography


Posted another lovely family over at The Mixed Race Project. Christine and Randy live in Seattle, WA and I had the pleasure of visiting them when we were there in August. I loved the hilltop view of the city from their Seattle home and it makes me impatient for the summer when we’ll go back like we do every year. Although I’m not sure how much longer I will continue working on this project, I do hope to feature a few more families this year. Thanks for all your encouragement and positive feedback over The Mixed Race Project over the last 18 months. It’s helped me keep the series going.

    I love your Mixed Race Project. I don’t know if I can communicate this effectively but I believe it is a piece of something bigger. In most parts of the world, mixed race marriages are still unheard of let alone accepted. These wonderful unions and their beautiful children are a step towards a united humanity. When I see your photos, I get a sense of the future and a hope for peace.

    I still love your Mixed Race Project. I just really like hearing about other people’s lives. I hope it continues!

    I love this project and will be sad to see it go (if it does indeed). I think understanding of race relations (or anything, really) comes with being exposed to the individual/ the micro. Who was it that said that the personal is political?

    I love this post partly because I am Filipina who is married to a Frenchman and raising two girls with both identities (as well as their American selves). I think this is a wonderful project that promotes awareness and shed light as to how people form various cultural and racial backgrounds come together to form a new identity. Well done!

    Please don’t stop the Mixed Race Project! My family and I live in Toronto, Canada where mixed race families are surely more common than ever, but still not nearly as widely accepted as they could be. Your features offer a sense of a joint effort among us all to see a small piece of the big picture. I’d love to do or see a collaborative Canadian version North of the border with families that are living the Mixed Race vida (loca).
