The joys and challenges of a long-term relationship
Roller Coaster. Scenes from a Marriage expresses a variety of
moments most long-term relationships face with intended honesty,
intimacy, and humor. In western culture, growing old is often
accompanied by feelings of shame. Terms such as losing your wits,
becoming irrelevant and being abandoned haunt older individuals.
Aimee McCrory's goal as a photographer is to raise awareness regarding
the joys and the challenges of growing old together. Drawing upon her
background in theater, she created the series as a pseudo- documentary
version of the relationship with her husband of forty-two years, Don.
McCrory manipulates their personal domestic circumstances just enough to
heighten elements of mystery. The viewer's array of responses may say
more about their domestic relationships than about what can be seen in
the actual photographs.
