Intermarried (Kehrer, 2013) explores the notion, and questions the implications, of intermarriage. I initiated the project by contacting an online parent group in Washington Heights, my NY neighborhood, inviting couples who define themselves as ‘mixed’ to participate. Being myself intermarried, I was interested in the many challenges faced by couples who choose to share their lives regardless of their different origins, ethnicities, races or religions. Drawing on the experience of the people who responded to my post, I constructed a narrative that deals, through images and texts, with the multifaceted issues posed by intermarriage. Selected images and texts follow.
