Artsuite - Debbie Grossman - The Fae and Doris Caudill family eating dinner in their dugout - originally photographed by Russell Lee for the United States Farm Security Administration in 1940. Using Photoshop to manipulate the original images, Grossman has created an imaginary, parallel world— a town populated exclusively by women.

Debbie Grossman's series My Pie Town reworks and re-imagines a body of images originally photographed by Russell Lee for the United States Farm Security Administration in 1940. Using Photoshop to manipulate the original images, Grossman has created an imaginary, parallel world— a town populated exclusively by women. In some of her revisions, she has taken male bodies and rendered them to look like masculine women; in others, Grossman has taken pairs of women, shifted their distance and body language, and brought them closer to create a sense of intimacy. Just as Lee’s original photographs offered an idealized view of Western agrarian life, Grossman’s imaginative and revisionist history exists a utopian fantasy in which gender roles are fluid and the traditional idea of family is redefined.
