In his series The Community, Eli Durst photographs around and inside church basements and community centers, exploring how we strive for community in America. In this image, a young family stands outside with their infant child, nearly camouflaged within the crowded cluster of tree branches. As they offer a bottle to the baby held within the young woman’s arms, the couple’s own limbs mesh with that of the tree branches, forming a brief moment of natural security and respite. Durst teaches photography at the University of Texas in Austin, and was the winner of the 2016 Aperture Portfolio Prize and a 2017 Aaron Siskind Individual Photographer's Fellowship Grant.
