Reminiscent Memories of a More Moral Past
Reminiscent Memories of a More Moral Past is a photographic series developed for my senior thesis at Ramapo College in 2006. This series of self portraits was created through the use of a tripod and timed photography. It was originally displayed projected in a room set with a kitchen table as I proceeded to serve viewers pie and lemonade.
Reminiscent Memories of a More Moral Past takes a look at how we view history with rose colored glasses. We often hear that the breakdown of values and morals are caused by the degeneration of the family unit and blurred lines of gender roles in the household. This series peels away the layers of the assumed morality of the nuclear family in between the valued advice provided by the pages of Good Housekeeping and pinup smut.
