I am interested in life as a form of theater, particularly in ways domestic space has been acted in and acted upon. In the series Home Theater I am photographing domestic spaces in which sadomasochistic sex acts are taking place. The predilections of sex in this work metaphorize the other aspects of our lives that are so highly ritualized.
In rummaging through boxes of old wedding portraits at a midtown flea market I was intrigued to find that couples that were photographed in the Victorian era rarely, if ever, touched. I wondered what would happen if I reconstructed these portraits substituting same-sex couples for their hetero counterparts. I wondered too what would happen if I chose only those who had been together for years, ones who were almost painfully familiar, posing them in their own domestic spaces.
