Made in The Shade is a series of imagined characters portrayed in mid century modern home environments, mirroring an era that was aspiring for change. The carefully staged scenes explore women’s roles, vulnerability, question identity and overall, celebrate women's power. The images are charged with an ambiguous narrative yet, allow the viewer to stitch all the elements together to imagine what fate awaits these imagined characters. The work expresses a quiet melancholy and probes tensions between invisible challenges, intimacy, identity, and life.
