An Un(Common) Family

Gerard Baron


An Un(Common) Family is a collection of ten candid portraits of a Southeast Asian family taken during Baron’s journey across remote parts of rural Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, the Philippines and Indonesia from 2007 to 2008 to discover his heritage. This photo essay explores the simple moments, emotions and expressions that transcend borders and are common to all people. Baron asks questions about what has been lost in all of our apparent sophistication.
