Beth Yarnelle Edwards Suburban Dreams

Since 1997 photographer Beth Yarnelle Edwards has been making photographs in idyllic suburban middle-class settings in America and Europe. The first photos in this series were created in California's Silicon Valley, where the artist lived, and subsequent pictures were made in Germany, France, Spain, Iceland and the Netherlands. Edwards approaches scenes of everyday life with a mixture of documentary interest and cinematographic staging. She combines real-life settings with philosophical truths, thus conveying images of loneliness, of constant media exposure, of minor escapes and major yearnings. Without making any value judgments, the pictures give us a revealing glimpse of interpersonal relationships, domestic rituals, customs and leisure pastimes. Edwards's photographs have been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions, including at the Wilhelm-Hack-Museum, Ludwigshafen, Germany, and the at Château d'Eau in Toulouse, France and the Musée de la Photographie à Charleroi, Belgium, and are in the collections of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Museet for Fotokunst, Odense, and others.
