Edward Cushenberry

Edward Cushenberry was born and raised in Orange County, California. After getting his B.F.A in photography from Art Center College of Design, he moved to East Pasadena to work as a freelance artist. His work is an extremely personal, intimate and intrusive documentation of the relationships he has with those who are close to him and, in some cases, a direct invasion of their privacy.


Picture 002I’ve Known My Dad My Whole Life

My dad has always been there for me when I was growing up. He sacrificed a lot for me, including his own happiness at times, to make sure my life was better than his. Every since I moved away from home, it’s been hard to keep in contact. These photos are an attempt to stay close with him.
