'My Parents Love Each Other... and their Home' is a collection of photographs that explores the complicated relationship between photographer Paul Koncewicz's mother and stepfather. The series consists of intricately arranged and staged photographs that convey the couple's shared dreams, boundaries, power struggles and ultimately strong bond.

The collection is divided into two sections, the first exploring the couple themselves and the second looking at details of their house and personal belongings.

Some of the photographs of the couple show them engaged in mundane activities like watching TV or sitting around in the kitchen. The strangest image of the collection shows Koncewicz's mother sitting on her husband's back with him on all fours, carrying her around like a horse.

The photographs do a great job of capturing the nuances and complexities of an adult relationship, powerfully conveying that every relationship has positive and negative aspects that make for a natural balance and harmony.
