Divorce Photos: When A House Is Not A Home
share this story
We were intrigued by this photo by Stephanie Cinelli, as was comedian Samantha Bee, who owns a print by the New Jersey-based photographer. The image, taken in Bucks County, PA is part of a powerful series on divorce. Says Cinelli:
"The idea behind this series was to document the changes in the home of a family as the process of a divorce was occurring. In this instance, the mother was the one to leave the home while the father and sons remained. Due in part to the fractured family unit, as well as the absence of the matriarch, a quiet emptiness became evident as time went on. The subtle changes in the home were the things that spoke the loudest about the difficulty of this emotional transition."
