Publisher's Description

When Mary Frey began photographing family, friends and strangers in her immediate environment in 1979, she was in a state of transition. Studies finished, first teaching assignment, pregnant - responsibilities, duties, worries - and the need to look for meaning in everyday life. After a childhood in the sense of an imminent nuclear catastrophe, in an America where lifestyle magazines and television give directions how the BRAVE NEW WORLD should look and function.

Mary Frey has made strange pictures. Technically perfect, between snapshot and enactment, intimacy and distance. Charged banalities with children, adolescents and adults, middle class, USA, 35 years ago. No reportage, a psychogram. Stock photos that no magazine would have printed, no agency would have used for a campaign. Weird.

In the end, Raymond Carver asks, 'Would I live my life over again? Make the same unforgiveable mistakes?'

And as Raymond Carver in words Mary Frey answers with her pictures: YES.
