Chelsea Silbereis is a photographer living in Hamden Connecticut. She seeks to explore and document family life as an attempt to define and understand the truth in family dynamics and the experience of being a child. Her work is built around her own struggle to belong and feel comfortable as a member of a family. Her family of origin was often overwhelmingly emotional, an experience that left her feeling disconnected. By photographing her own family, she gives herself the distance to see her family, and the connections within more clearly, appreciate it more thoroughly, and understand it better so that she can more easily fill the role of mother. She lives with her husband two children, a dog and a cat. She likes to imagine the ghosts of pets past are also members of the household.
