This photo project is my story about how people live their ordinary lives in America. There are times when I enter someone’s home and think, Finally I've found the most mundane activity imaginable, because that's what I've always looked for. But that satisfaction is elusive. I know there's something else, I just didn't get it. There's always something more.
