These images are part of a series, titled Veneer, that was created in 2013. It depicts the lives of a fictional family, circa 1972, and allows the viewer to peel back the veneer of normality to reveal what is hidden behind closed doors. Every family has secrets, dysfunction, things that they desperately try to hide from the outside world. Veneer is a voyeuristic view of a certain time and place and the contradictions of what is seen and unseen.
