Please join us at SooVAC for a book release event, Thursday, May 21st, 5:30-7:30pm for Housebroken by Areca Roe.

The book Housebroken is a collection of photographs by Areca Roe. It's the culmination of her latest project by the same name, for which she photographed unusual pets in their domestic environments. Over the past three years, Roe has photographed creatures such as snakes, hedgehogs, pot-bellied pigs, and ferrets in their homes. The pets are fascinating animals, to be sure, but their relationship with the owners has an element of ambiguity—it is not as clear and established as the companionship and comfort offered by dogs and cats. Roe's photographs explore the elements of these relationships, and the tensions that occur between the apparent wildness of the creature and its tame, domestic surroundings of soft textures and clutter. Books will be available for sale at the event.
