These photographs are digital composites using vintage Better Homes and Gardens magazines that were found in a home my family inherited. The interiors depicted are void of people and for good reason. The presence of a person in the imagery would change the photograph from an objective depiction of a room to a statement. I aimed to use these interiors as my landscape for what the original artists did not intend, a re-imagining into a world that my generation longs to know. A fashion spread that I can only imagine fit the era but with it's own modern twist. These photographic illustrations give the audience an opportunity to be transported back in time, transported into a saucy orange living room looking through paisley printed window shades.
