Jaret Belliveau

Jaret Belliveau is only 26, but he takes pictures like he’s been through a lot. The pictures you see above are from a collection called ‘The Dirt Squad’, which look like pictures of his little brothers friends, hanging out and getting drunk in attics. To me, they look like glossy versions of something Ed Templeton would do.
His most powerful pictures though, come from his Familial Endurance, which document his mother’s cancer, and how she and his family experienced it. It’s extremely emotional, and unfortunately, tragic. I honestly got teary eyed while looking through the photos, and even writing this, I get a bit choked up.
