a married couple
Denelle + Tom’s personal series of self portraits, created by
“amarriedcouple,” portrays the satirical view on a traditional marriage. Inspired by their own lives and experiences, the duo creates snapshots of themselves in a fantasy world built within their studio. After being diagnosed with a chronic illness early in their relationship, the couple decided to reimagine their first year of marriage by creating characters for themselves to reflect their own ideas of gender performance within a relationship. Their work aims to highlight tensions between a husband and wife while simultaneously highlighting the power of photography to influence a perceived reality.
