Mother.

Photographs by Judy Olausen.
Penguin, New York, 1996. Unpaged,

"In the spirit of William Wegman and Cindy Sherman, Judy Olausen offers up a hillarious yet oddly unsettling collection of portraits of that most sacred of institutions: Mother. Photographing her mother using 1950s-inspired props she turns a lifelong homemaker into a surreal icon of all-American style domestic submission. From "Mother as Coffee Table" to "Mother as Doormat" or "Roadkill," Olausen creates visual metaphors for Mother's role in the era just preceding the women's liberation movement"--the publisher. It's funny.
