On the surface Barbie appears perfect. She’s beautiful, has great clothes, several good careers, and a perpetual smile. That fixed little smirk made me think about what she might be hiding behind the facade of perfection – after all, how great could life really be for a woman who clearly has an eating disorder, an addiction to plastic surgery, and nothing between her ears? My photographs portray the dark side of life in the dream house: Barbie’s obsession with her body, Ken’s quest for sexual gratification, all the dirty little secrets they attempt to hide as they present themselves as icons of the American Dream.
