Houses by Liesl Pfeffer

After I moved to America, I started photographing homes. People here live above liquor stores and car wash stations. People live right up against each other in the tallest blocks with the smallest windows. I live in an old warehouse with a wooden floor that has a history marked in dents and cracks, and there are two small bullet holes in the windows from the time this neighborhood was bad. There is a man who lives so close above me that sometimes at night I can hear him rolling in his bed on the other side of the ceiling.

Every morning I bike across Brooklyn from my home to my office. I see people leaving their homes, getting on buses, buying their morning coffee, making their way to school or work. Through photographing and reconstructing their homes, I am getting to know these people and I am making sense of my place in this city.

The series American houses is an ongoing project.

Small changes by Liesl Pfeffer

I started this blog late last year to share my photography, which has been my primary means of art making since I moved to the USA in January 2012. To say I have missed having the time and space to make physical artwork is a severe understatement.

I have started working in collage again after a 12 month hiatus, and I’ve decided to start sharing my collages alongside my photographs here in this space.

The key inspirations for my new collage work are from recent travels in North and South America. Everything is a work in progress.
