"Lazy Mom" by Josie Keefe & Phyllis Ma

October 02, 2014

Artists Josie Keefe, a prop stylist, and Phyllis Ma, window dresser, collaborate on a photo project titled LAZY MOM. Their name pokes fun at the idea of a bored housewife, slapping together meals like one precarious meat, cheese, and pickle stack, meals that look slapdash but were actually the result of many subtle arrangements. Keefe and Ma began their partnership as a series of unusual fruit-related photos to be printed in a zine, but after being published they found they had more exploring to do with food and photography. This resulted in their first collaborative show at Good Work Gallery in Brooklyn, NY. The show runs through October 19th.
