Photographer Dona Schwartz, a professor of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Minnesota, has an interesting pair of photo projects titled “On the Nest” and “Empty Nesters“. The first shows portraits of expecting parents as they prepare to welcome a new member of the family. The second features portraits of parents who are coping with an empty house after their children have grown up and moved out.
The first three images showed expecting parents. Here are a couple of photographs of empty nesters:
