Dwellings are photos of homes taken in the US Northwest and British Columbia.  These homes are often overly groomed, organized to an extreme, or perhaps just the opposite. They reflect those who live within and yet sometimes don't seem to relate to any real person at all. These explorations of houses here in British Columbia reflect on the past, as many of these residential areas are now being torn down and replaced with town houses or "monster homes" which stretch from edge to edge of the property line, as families can no longer afford the cost of the property without an added rental unit. How people relate to their home "as their castle" is quickly changing.

This series of phos is ever growing, and relates to my other two series, Open House, which are views from inside many of these homes, and Private Yards, about the efforts people take to make these small parcels of land their own.
