The American commercial photographer has started a project called American Bedroom – reflections of the nature of life. The whole idea behind the project is to show who Americans are as individuals and a nation through detailed and intimate portraits taken in the bedrooms across the USA.
The photographer invites her friends and strangers as well to open the door for her in order to depict the true image of an American. As she explains on her website, ” American Bedroom is a cultural and anthropological study of Americans in their private dwelling; their bedroom. The scope of the project is all corners of the United States. The journalistic merit of the project is to embrace and consider all lives and the minute details of each enigmatic life. Ultimately these moments will allow us to look inward at the complex beauty of humankind, ourselves, and fellow Americans.
