REMINISCENT MEMORIES OF A MORE MORAL PAST

Reminiscent Memories of a More Moral Past was part of my senior thesis at Ramapo College of New Jersey in 2006. It 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.
