Welcome to The Housewife Series, by Julia Galdo and Cody Cloud, found via Anna‘s charming blog Much Love. It’s a no brainer why I was immediately drawn to these photographs: vintage house dresses, mid-century interiors, and a sad pretty girl. But what I love most of all is the transformation that seems to come through the series. For instance, the juxtaposition between two pictures, one where she is caged behind a stair railing, and in the next she is standing defiantly. And then she makes it outside, dances on a railing and gets to escape on her bicycle.
