On the Nest

 
9783868286120: On the Nest

Dona Schwartz's environmental portraits examine two key transitions in life—becoming a first-time parent and adjusting to an empty nest when children have left home. In quotes accompanying the portraits, parents reveal their views on the changes awaiting them. On the Nest provides a poignant and often humorous look at these underexamined, yet defining moments that forever change our lives. The photographs reflect parents' hopes and expectations, as well as the struggle, anxiety—and joy—of childrearing. They also reflect the diversity of American family life by representing interracial couples, gay and lesbian couples, and single parents.
