Brooke DiDonato’s photographs put a strange touch on ordinary Western backdrops. The narratives, though vague, evoke intimacy in how it confronts its disappearing or despondent characters. In series like “Recess,” “In Bloom,” “Roses” and “A House is Not a Home,” the artist is able to either inject fleeting beauty into undesirable places or extract surrealism out of the unassuming.
