Houses

Over the course of four years I have studied and photographically explored a set of suburban tract homes located in Santa Clara, California. They were built during the 1950’s and structured from the same architectural plan. This sort of terrain was first documented in the New Topography movement of the 1970’s. As I take a second look at these neighborhoods, I’ve found vast differences in what was once a uniform typology. Over the past 50 years these Houses have transformed from modest white cubes into a vibrant display of personality and present a rebellion against conformity. My work asserts that human individuality cannot be contained. Inevitably it shines through even the most average facade.
