Never Ever After
As children we are taught that the myth of “happily ever after” endings are possible. The idea of a prince on a white horse saving the day stays with girls into adulthood, even if just as a fleeting possibility. Unfortunately, happily ever after rarely applies to reality. Growing up in an unstable and dysfunctional environment can lend to a desire to be part of your own fairytale- a desire for the happy ending, one that never comes. Never Ever After is a series that consists of photographic documentations of crime scenes. The crime scenes explore alternate endings to time-honored fairytales. Each scene has been constructed using miniatures and hand-built sets. These images act as a morbid dose of reality, in essence breaking the cycle of innocent hope.
