Image series: Domestication: A Recovery Act
2 images from the ongoing series

Domestication: A Recovery Act is a documentary series focused on the lives of housewives. I began working on this series as an investigation into the personalities and lives of actual housewives to gain a more respectful understanding of the “occupation housewife” at a time when popular culture was, and still is, instilling ideals of false realities about housewives.

This series of work is very close to me. Each photo represents a life that was lost at that location. I wanted to make the scene look surreal, so I chose to leave the reds that were cast from the streetlights. The photos are very empty, and still. I feel that this best represents the feeling of the community after losing so many young lives.
