Porch Series

During the 18th and 19th century the front porch developed a cultural significance in America. It became an idealized symbol for family, community, and nature, and it was a space for people to connect with the world surrounding their home. Overtime, the front porch has began losing its sense of culture, so my main focus was to photograph homes that I believe still display the symbolism behind the front porch, while also focusing on the overall attention to detail that was put into the architectural design of porches during the 18th and 19th century, when the cultural significance of the American front porch was most prevalent. The front porch is a transitional space between the private world of the homeowners, and the public street. I found that the porch often showcases the personalities of the people living in the home, and it also shows how the homeowners use the space to connect with nature and the land surrounding them.
