Sheila Pree Bright’s Suburbia series works to counter mainstream media’s often stereotyped representations of Black communities with a more realistic view of middle-class African American family life. In her carefully composed photographs of the interiors of Black-owned homes in suburban Atlanta, she creates narratives that allude subtly to socioeconomic status and racial identity. The arrangement of the rooms and their contents invites the viewer to imagine the lives of their inhabitants and creates a portrait of the people who inhabit them.
