About the Book
Fixated on the Housewife is a small composite of "The Housewife" series, a series photographer Marisa Pike has been working on for thirteen years. The book shows what each year with changes in Marisa's own personal life and each model can do to evoke feeling what the housewife is going through or thinking of during mundane acts in life.
The photographer juxtaposed symbols/tools with the housewife as metaphors to give idea of specific emotions and thoughts.
The book shows the different phases of "The Housewife" series, from the camera it was shot on (starting with film to digital) to the muse.
