Surveying photographic interpretations of American domestic life in the 1980s, this predominantly pictorial catalogue presents 121 prints which range from straight documentary images to overtly staged narrative compositions, many depicting everyday scenes and personal interactions permeated with disjuncture, tension and a vague surreality. Features excellent reproductions of works by Friedlander, Nixon, Eggleston, Barney, Sherman, Simmons and 56 other artists along with an essay discussing the prevalence of irony in postmodern photographic portrayals of contemporary society.
