Jordan's work is about the dissonance felt when your home is somewhere you don't belong. His images explore a life and a relationship in the context of an at-times violent neighborhood, and the anxiety of that looming violence coming into the home. In the process of making work in West Philadelphia, Jordan’s mind was overwhelmed with feelings of anxiety and the dread of impending violence. Now, some time later, all of those concerns have since faded away. He recalls falling deeper in love with his fiancé, Anne, sharing his first home and making the decision to spend the rest of his life with her. That’s the way Jordan prefers to remember his time there.
