In the summer of 2013, I mailed ten disposable cameras to ten different white American women between the ages of 30 and 34. Accompanying the camera was a list of twenty-seven prompts to go along with each exposure; this allowed me to have more control over the project without specifically controlling what the photographs would be. The medium of a disposable camera offers a raw perspective without the safety of digital cameras. The women could not alter the image nor review it, giving them less control. The project began as an endeavor to observe and document a demographic of culture through a curatorial role. With this visual narrative I reveal contextual truths about the lives of the participants. I selected this demographic due to my personal fascination of what defines white culture and of the ever-present ideas and themes of domestication and gender roles.
This collection of photographs are viewed in book form and can be purchased here.
