Going Home

I”ve been working on a project for the last few months, which involves this wonderful tin lithography Marx colonial dollhouse that my friend Nan loaned me:
dollhouse
I took a bunch of photos…here are two:
doll-parlor
dolls-kitchen
And then I photoshopped them, so they all have this graphic effect:

…which, I don’t know. I can’t tell at this point if that was a mistake or not. It’ll probably be a while before I can decide one way or the other.

Because of all this indecision, I’m holding off on doing a print edition of this project and instead I’m publishing it as a webzine. You can see the complete “Going Home” right here.

Can you go home again?

  1. Wendy, how wonderful to see the little house that was old when daughter Joanna played with it used by you with such sensitivity. I found the embedded/implied narrative of “Going Home” to be compelling and affecting. The manipulation of the images serves your purpose well, from my perspective. A fine piece of work to go with all your fine pieces of work. A privilege to know you.

  2. Wendy, Going Home is poignant and provocative. It moves me very much. The images go right through me and I am transported in time and place. Home is so personal, yet your zine embraces universal themes about that place for us all. Thank you for your vision. I can’t wait to see your next inspiration.
