Artist buys immitation family to satirize conformity

December 14, 2014 - Denver, Colorado, USA: For her annual holiday photo greeting, American Conceptual Photographer, Suzanne Heintz, photographs herself with her store-bought family, ironically catching themselves on display in a shop window. It is the single girl's answer to the popular family photo greeting card. Part of her 14 year photo series, LIFE ONCE REMOVED, in which Heintz satirizes the image of a "Perfect Life." She uses humor to challenge the mid-20th Century societal expectations still present for women of a "Certain Age" to marry and have children. She recreates all aspects of family life with her immitation husband and daughter, featuring them in scenes of blissful domestic life in and outside of the home, traditional holidays, and idyllic family vacations.
