Photographer Explores The Diverse Concept Of Family In Heartwarming Portraits

Brooklyn, New York

New York-based photographer Michele Crowe’s series ‘The Universal Family’ explores the diverse concept of family in the US.

Her series features inter-racial, same-sex and single-parent households, all bound by the thread of love and kinship.

“Everyone has a family in some shape or form, and I believe that support system to be one of the most important things in the world. A family can be big or small, blood related or not, same sex oriented or not and of course composed of people with similar or wildly different cultural backgrounds. I believe If you’re lucky, you truly understand that love has no boundaries,” she told My Modern Met.

Crowe is currently raising funds on Kickstarter to turn her project into a book.

Check out some portraits below and head over to Kickstarter to pledge for the series.
