Roadkill Family Album

Within Roadkill Family Album friends and family members were given the same nonsensical instructions whilst having their portraits taken. The images were taken on family holidays and at special occasions. The repetition of these actions aimed to normalize these strange commands. The series highlighted the constructed nature of commands such as "act naturally" or "smile". The models were photographed alone so anyone could join in the series. The series was produced from 2000 to 2015 and could be seen as a precursor to selfie and meme culture.
