Time spent at home is time well spent. My intention is to create images that depict domestic work and pleasure, sometimes the two co-mingle. Suburban is an identity and a state of mind. The suburbanite archetype is not revered, nor is it regularly claimed by those who fit the role. My images are an open ended narrative. They serve as an allegory for suburban existence.
The practices depicted might be slightly out of the norm. Whether or not my photographic project succeeds in disseminating my own practices into the main stream is another story. By using the backdrop of the typical suburban yard it is my hope that the images seem universal or normal, maybe even iconographic.
If my images fail to become symbols for all that is suburban, they can at least represent what really matters: A well manicured lawn, beer, grilled meat, and the weekend.
