    This is part 1 of my Modern America series. A personal project inspired by the paintings of Norman Rockwell, I decided to tackle modern American societal dynamics/issues through the lens of Rockwellian optimism. AIDs, women in all levels of the military, gays in Scouting, single parent households, these were all issues that people didn't grapple with publicly in the America of the 1930's-60's. Life today is admittedly more complicated, but this doesn't mean we've lost all of our optimism, thus my decision to reimagine Norman Rockwell's work in particular as it symbolized hope for an entire generation. I hope you like this work. I plan to release the final 5 images sometime next year. Hair & Makeup: Brenda Kessler-Poole & Colleen Griffin See more of my work here: www.jessicabeebe.com Read Less
