Larry Sultan: The Valley
UNITED STATES
SAN FRANCISCO  •  San Francisco Museum of Modern Art  •  Ongoing
 
Bay Area photographer Larry Sultanís The Valley series focuses on the San Fernando Valley, where he grew up, and addresses the use of ordinary homes as sets for pornographic films. In Sultanís large-scale color photographs, mundane objects ó a roll of paper towels, a stack of dirty dishes ó take on new weight, and suburban life becomes a symbolically charged backdrop. The project investigates the meaning of home and asks why the ideal of middle-class domesticity lends itself to this most curious form of cultural appropriation.
