Debbie Grossman has created a series wherein Russell Lee's classic Farm Security Administration photographs of Pie Town, New Mexico, are variously manipulated and curated so that the place is reimagined as a sort of lesbian utopia (yes, yes—honest to God, "Pie Town" was the real, original name).
- "Jack Whinery, homesteader, with his wife and the youngest of his five children, Pie Town, New Mexico."
- "Jessie Evans-Whinery, homesteader, with her wife Edith Evans-Whinery and their baby." From My Pie Town.
Modified version FTW.
*My Pie Town, part of the program Women in Photography NYC, is up through January 31 at Julie Saul Gallery, on THE BEST COAST. Wait. That wordplay doesn't work, does it?
