The Roddis House in Marshfield, Wisconsin was built in 1914 under the supervision of my great-grandparents Hamilton and Catherine Roddis. My great-aunt Augusta lived there her entire life, preserving the home in every detail. As she neared the end of her life, I turned to photography as a way to document and preserve our family history. Through the course of the project, I realized that my great-aunt and I shared a deep desire to somehow stop time.
