Anonymous Women is a series of photographs in which the figure is becoming the dwelling itself, and experiencing the double-edge of domesticity. Each woman is trapped in her home, camouflaged by her objects and obsessions. The surrounding space and suggestive stories invite both pathos and humor about our relationships with “things.” Here, decoration is out of control, and the woman of the house is lost in her own madness.
