In the summer of 2020, during the Covid pandemic, I stayed inside with little to no contact with the outside world except for social media and seeing the landscape of my suburban community on my daily jogs. I wanted to try to use the tools at my disposal, an oversized garage and a large saltwater pool, to show this landscape of privilege, excess, and middle class wealth. I don’t see myself as a critic necessarily of this landscape, but an observer and willing consumer within it. These images were taken on foot in the 2-3 mile radius of my house, and developed using a solution of pool salt and water from my backyard pool, mixed with silver nitrate and exposed with the Texas midday summer sun.
