Using the camera as my tool I document my father and I tirelessly performing our tradition of labor. For the first 19 years of my life, my family and I constructed and repaired our current family home, our past ones, and other people's property. How-To: Build a Father and Son Relationship is our iteration of visual labor that is in conversation with the Mexican Muralist, the WPA murals, and commercial photographs that circulate home improvement establishments. The materials in my still lives such as blue tarp, house paint, advertisement, amazon boxes, wallpaper samples, and my mother's barber apron all are symbolic of labor in the economic landscape of Harlingen, Texas.
