about this item

KayLynn Deveney's photographs explore "Cinderella-style" homes built throughout the American Southwest in the 1950s and '60s, when developers applied fairy tale-style aesthetics to ranch house exteriors. This book, the first time these houses are subject of a published photographic work, highlights personalized details outside the home resulting in photographs that reach beyond description to become metaphorical family portraits of those living inside. It tells us about a fading vision of the American dream, the last indications of a zeitgeist that encouraged Americans to aspire to a candy-coated vision of family and home.
