New York-based photographer Brooke DiDonato creates a feeling of home which is slightly shifted. Most of the photographs in Make Yourself at Home are self-portraits made from 2011-2021 in the three places DiDOnato called home: Ohio, New York and Texas. ‘Make Yourself at Home’ is a series of photographs exploring the loss and subsequent redefining of home. DiDonato explains, that ‘straddling the line between mundane and absurd, each image deconstructs a personal experience and depicts my understanding of home as a place of both comfort and turbulence. In contrast to bizarre and often unlikely scenarios, Make Yourself at Home remains grounded in familiar domestic settings. The result is a series of psychological landscapes reflecting on identity, relationships, turmoil, and the changes that are necessary to move forward.’
Why we believe in this NFT: The audience is lulled into a false sense of security by DiDonato. Instead of entering a world of confidence and security, we are thrust into an unexpected realm. Yet all is not as it seems.
We warmly welcome Brooke DiDonato to Jenny DAO
