Skating Home: Covering Mid-Missouri Hockey Families

Skating Home is a two-part photographic, digital presentation exploring family in the relation to the sport of hockey. It is this familial dedication that has allowed two organizations to teach generations of central Missouri kids a sport that requires a considerable amount of effort to learn despite being in a place with sparse access to the necessary facilities.

The first chapter, Highway to Hockey, documents a Columbia family and how they seek ice hockey through a weekly commitment to travel whether its 30 minutes down US Highway 63 or 2 hours away across Interstate 70. The second chapter, Adam’s Hockey Heart, follows a single main character who has formed a family around himself through his hockey relationships in Hallsville and Macon.
