Photography has the power to capture the essence of a person, place or thing and reveal hidden aspects that we might have never noticed. That’s why photographer Barbara Peacock is on a mission to explore the American Dream through the lens of a camera. In her project “American Bedroom,” she travels the United States capturing intimate and anthropological photographs of average Americans in their bedrooms.
The bedroom is a personal and intimate space where we can be the truest version of ourselves. It is where we start and end the day, and it reveals so much about our personalities and lifestyles. Barbara Peacock is passionate about capturing the “poetic resonance of ordinary subjects” and in this project, she has successfully brought to light the many different living conditions and lifestyles that make up the American experience.
As you scroll through these candid photographs, you will see the diversity of American bedrooms, from those that are cluttered and cozy to those that are sparse and minimalistic. Each image tells a unique story, and together, they paint a picture of what the American Dream truly means to different people. From urban apartments to rural homes, these photographs show us the wide range of living conditions that exist in the United States.
