Re-interpretable Depression Era Photos

Debbie Grossman re-interprests depression era photographs by having all female families.  The projects is My Pie Town.

 

“Imagine an America in which all-female families survived the Great Depression raising children and farming homesteads in the absence of men (and in the absence of today’s detractors to gay marriage.) Artist Debbie Grossman visualizes an alternate reality of dusty plains and simple family meals drawn from the Farm Security Administration’s archives, creating an endlessly interpretable world in which the contemporary idea of family is presented as historical. My Pie Town is on view at Julie Saul Gallery through May 21, 2011″ from an interview by Nozlee Samadzadeh
