Photographer: Leigh Merrill

June 7, 2010

When photographer Leigh Merrill lived in the Bay Area, she took thousands of photos of houses in San Francisco. The “Streets” series presented here focuses on houses in the Sunset neighborhood — images that are, as Merrill explains, digital fabrications, with each image “typically made from several photographs of individual houses combined with tens to hundreds of smaller bits and pieces from other photographs of houses.” The results are images that appear to be plausible, straightforward, but are in fact illogical, even strange — like home ownership in America today, they are an unsettling mix of fantasy and reality.
