Morganne Boulden is a Brooklyn based photographer whose work surrounds the heaviness of childhood, evoking an intimacy that is fleeting, uncertain, and rooted in fantasy. All of her photographs are made while on road trips across America with close friends and chosen family. The car, once a place associated with abuse, gets reclaimed as a vessel of freedom & reflection. The children featured in these photographs exist in unconventional, taboo settings, underscoring the uniquely intense nature of childhood. Photographs taken at a physical distance between subjects and photographer reflect her own emotional distance between her family and herself, separating the viewer from the scene to instill outsiderness. The ambivalent palette of vibrant colors contrasted in dark lighting speaks to the beauty within the complexity of family.
