Strange Labor at Wild Bill’s, 2014
silver gelatin prints

Wild Bill’s Nostalgia Center in Middletown, Connecticut is an “awesome place,” a local gem in a wasteland of pharamacy monsters, elite (education) campuses, and grotesque displays of economic disparity. Strange Labor is a real and fantastically rendered underbelly of such a landscape. Lines that may distinguish work from leisure and reality from fantasy collapse under a dimmer luminosity – between seduction, ablution, and fright-freight.
