Different Lives

A female photographer created an interesting series of portraits.  She imagined herself married to several different men, living several different lives.  She took pictures of these alternatives.

I find this fascinating.  Here are a few of her "lives" and a link to the story.




  1. Really interesting statement. I need to think about this one a bit more and come back to it before I can put in my two cents, but I wonder if it's a statement about how a women's socioeconomic status is still more defined by her male counterpart? Let me think about this...


    1. I'm looking forward to your deeper thoughts.

  2. Interesting post. I like how she looks in the second shot. It makes me wonder if despite having wealth she's totally happy with her life?

  3. The second image is my favourite, especialy like the expressions on their face.

  4. Pretty clever artwork! Excellent :)

  5. What a super cool project, and clever idea! I wonder if she keeps in contact with them, and if she made a connection with the people she posed with.

    On tumblr I came across a photography project that was "nude photography"... But in the sense that the photographer was nude, not the subject. The photos are of the peoples reactions! Hilarious.

  6. That's great! I'll have to follow the link when I have more time, I so loved the pics. Who hasn't pondered the "what-if" scenario?

  7. Interesting project she undertook. The results are interesting and thought provoking.

  8. Brilliant idea - it speaks to to so many things and really strikes a chord with me, as I tend to be one of those people who sends a lot of time thinking about how my life would be now had it played out differently (based on past events that I experience/people I knew), and I think a project like this taps into that "would if" that we all grapple with immensely well. Major kudos to this innovative photographer.

  9. This is really interesting. Always weird to think about alternate paths.
