My grandfather started a small fire extinguisher company out the back of a beat up pick up truck in a small rural town outside of Pittsburgh, PA in the mid 50’s.
This business has grown to 80+ employees and a handing down through the generations.
My parents have given me the freedom to choose a path that makes me happy, I’ve chosen not to stay within the family business.
My brother on the other hand, along with his wife have joined the family business with in the past 4 years and are rapidly approaching a point where my father will step down.
To be an outsider watching this transition unfold, I have no choice then to document it.
The slowing down of one chapter of my father’s life and the speeding up of my brothers. This is the cycle of life. I can’t imagine how my father feels. I know he has trained my brother well.
I feel that this image really encapsulates that transition I’m witnessing between them.
