I can hardly imagine a place more versatile than my bedroom. It’s a place of rest, sleep, mental recharge; a place for reading, writing, lazy mornings, cuddles, and so much more. Photographer Barbara Peacock recognizes the intimacy and meaning of one’s bedroom, so she started a project that’s all about it. For the past six years, she has traveled all over the US capturing the essence of people and their bedrooms in a stunning series of photos she named American Bedroom.
15 photos of abandoned bedrooms show their dusty remains
The bedroom is one of the most personal spaces in a house, hotel or any other kind of building. It’s a place where my imagination can go wild. When I stand in an abandoned bedroom I’d like to think ‘what happened here?’. People used to sleep here, been intimate with each other, had discussions and laughter etc.
Sometimes even personal belongings have been left behind as you can see in the pictures, for whatever reason. Since the bedroom is such a personal space and the memories / history of that space is being consumed by nature, I decided to create a set of a couple I ran into while exploring.
