Tim Schutsky created this series of photographs called The Odds of Being Born in collaboration with artist Keren Shavit. The images came out of a long term collaboration with a family from a small town in the smoky mountains. Inspired by David Lynch and other filmmakers, Schutsky wanted the images to occupy the slippery area between fiction and reality. When not putting googly eyes on cobwebs, he's works as a Brooklyn-based editorial photographer.
