Anonymous Women: Demise Photography Series

The series of photographs, Anonymous Women: Demise is about the Anonymous Woman’s failure as she gives in to the dwelling. Her activities, obsessions and objects are overwhelming her. Her home has become a site of tragedy. This is the heartbreaking end of the Anonymous Woman.

Patty Carroll has been known for her use of highly intense, saturated color photographs since the 1970’s. Her most recent project, “Anonymous Women,” consists of a 3-part series of studio installations made for the camera, addressing women and their complicated relationships with domesticity. By camouflaging the figure in drapery and/or domestic objects, Carroll creates a dark and humorous game of hide-and-seek between her viewers and the Anonymous Woman. The photographs are published as a monograph, Anonymous Women, officially released in January, 2017 by Daylight Books.
