On My Mothers Side

“In On My Mother’s Side, Chicago-based photographer Emily Grimes offers an insider’s view of the secluded, tight-knit community in which she was raised. Growing up in the rarified air atop Lookout Mountain, Grimes, her siblings, and their twelve cousins were surrounded by parents and grandparents for whom both the daily cocktail hour and Sunday church services were sacrosanct. Through sensitive and crystalline photographs spanning three decades and four generations, Grimes captures a time and a place where live-in maids ministered to family needs, holiday traditions continued despite divorce and remarriage, and entire lifetimes were lived in one small town.”

“That tension between wanting to be in the place where my memories begin and my people live and the opposing desire to create my own life free of expectations and constraints has been with me for many years.”
