Closet Portraits (working title) 2013
#1-#7 inkjet prints 44in x 32in
I’m trying to explore our shopping habits as a culture. The set is similar to cartes des viste, where status is depicted in the type of things within the frame. I started with my closet.

The lesson is: go your own pace.
Consider a different Christmas gift option this year.
SO honored to be doing this with my 7th and 8th graders. Except that I cry when I’m talking about it, which makes my mascara run.
