In Some Light Switches in my House, I document with deadpan humor some light switches in my house. Most of the light switches are plain white rectangles. The crisp frontal color photographs are all shot from the same distance. There is, however, a surprising variety. Some are dirty, indicating heavy use. Others are relatively pristine. The light switches for the master bedroom and bath are in better condition than the light switches for the other bedroom and bath. The switches in the basement and laundry room are particularly unfinished. This book is a continuation of my exploration of contemporary middle-class daily life. Light switches reveal much about the use and value one places on the various areas of one’s house.
