The Hereditary Estate functions as a ten-year retrospective of Daniel Coburn’s work as a photographer and conceptual artist. This body of work investigates the family photo album and uses it as a metaphor for the flawed ideals of the American Dream. Coburn was driven by his frustration by with the lack of images that document the troubling nature of his own family’s past, so he set out to create a new archive, to supplement the incomplete family album that most families have. Using photographs made over the last decade, and altered amateur photographs, he weaves a family narrative that is beautiful and terrifying. In the photograph Resurrection, Coburn uses the magic of photography to freeze time. A simple bed sheet takes on qualities of the supernatural and is transformed into a ghost, apparition, or spirit.
