»In the Kitchen explores family life, youth culture, and coming of age. It encompasses the angst of being a teenager, the difficulties faced by a patchwork family, and the challenges of parenting six children. All of the photographs are set in my kitchen because it is the hub of my family’s life, a neutral zone we all occupy. The kitchen is the place in the house where our daily dramas are enacted. It’s where, together, we make a mess of things and do our best to clean it all up.« (Dona Schwartz)
