This project seeks to examine the photographic representation of suburbia and domestic space, particularly exploring the complex interaction of performance, consumption and appearance as fundamental aspects of identity formation and social interaction. Through analysis of the work of a number of contemporary postmodern photographers, suburbia is investigated as a prim location for the expression of identity, demonstrating both the capacity and the limitations of photography to illustrate profound issues of the structure of the self. As part of the project, I have produced a portfolio of images reflecting my own fantasies and concerns of suburban identity within an Australian context.
