Susan Copich is a former actress and a mother of two from New York, who has taken a dark but humorous approach to family photography in a series of photos she calls “Domestic Bliss”.
“If you’ve met me, I have a very seemingly sunny disposition, but I have a whole interior world where at different times I’ve felt depression and angst. For many years, I put it in a little ball, and I decided to just explore it this time. It’s been so fun to bring those feelings out and give them light,” she says.
Each image has a twist of darkness that defies the ordinary perception of family happiness. In her mid-forties, she decided to create a much more accurate depiction of domestic life.
