photos > Our Lady of This House

A selection of images from the Our Lady of This House series, which were portraits of the strong women in my life - family & friends - in their own clothes and homes. The images reference the Maysles Brothers' documentary Grey Gardens through performance, documentation and as imaginary film stills.
