Margo Halverson’s large scale photographs were made with an iPhone, they have a self conscious diaristic quality that records the ephemeral moments of domesticity. There is an optimism in the beauty and continuity of this portfolio that is smart and well crafted. It asks the question “Are we living well?” Small moments of parenthood, partnership, and family–children sleeping, playing outside, at the beach, making dinner, bathing, checking on the dog–the juncture the viewer imagines between the photographs as well as the medium pull the images together as a truly contemporary family portrait. These are curiously beautiful images that must be shared.
