Susan Copich, actress and a mother of two from New York, has taken a darkly humorous approach towards traditional family photography with a series of daring images entitled “Domestic Bliss.”

Copich spent years taking pictures of her family, but when she reached her mid-forties, she realized that she was missing from almost every photo. That’s when she decided to take things into her own hands, creating photos that would reflect all of her feelings – even the ambiguous or negative ones.

Fishy

Fishy - Behind The Awkwardness

“This photo was unearthed recently from a photo album, that had remained unseen for the past 20 years. No one in the family has any recollection of when and where this photo was taken, including my mother, the person gutting the fish. In fact, up until recently seeing this photo, she would have told you she had never gutted a fish. She also asks: “Why am i wearing sunglasses? And that bandanna?” This would be an amazing photo in itself, without the absurd addition of the mystery hands (no one knows who’s hands these are!), giving the sink a good plunge. As you do, when the person next to you is feverishly gutting a fish!”

Lapmom - Behind The Awkwardness

“At Christmas last year (2013), my younger sister was up from Florida (a not so common occurrence for the holidays) so we were trying to get some good pictures of the four siblings together. At some point we wanted to include our Mom in a picture, but since there really wasn’t enough room on the couch for her to sit with us, we tried this pose for fun. My wife was taking the picture and she was noticing that some of us were squinting. So she told everyone to open their eyes wide. Hence these expressions.”
