Bree Lamb's still life photography asks us to stop and take a closer look into objects from daily life that hold impact on our memories and our perceptions of domesticity. They contain both a shared yet varied experience. She examines and isolates these objects as she questions notions of the weight they each hold and their role in modern and past conventions.
In the series, A House, A Home, I isolate ubiquitous household objects as a way to begin to investigate traditions
of domestic American life. My observations are rooted in my own personal indulgences, expectations, and
questions, as well as how I see myself existing within this larger system. I'm interested in revealing some of the
complex layers of this shared cultural vernacular through pairing the familiar with the unexpected and creating
anticipation that is never quite resolved. The interventions and style of capture re-contextualize the objects as a
way to challenge traditional domesticity and to pose questions about convention, consumption, and
convenience as staples of American popular culture.
