Texas Trailer Park
70 x 80cm
C Type Photograph
Life was sweet growing up working class in a trailer park in Detroit. Sure we were poor but I didn’t know any better as I played with my friends and went to school. I have a soft place in my heart for Trailer Parks across America and the lives fully lived by the inhabitants. This photo was taken on the outer edge of Austin Texas in 1997.
