The Life Once Removed photo series addresses the American Dream and the quintessential American family it brings about in a quirky and somewhat depressing manner. The photographer, Suzanne Heintz, has fabricated her family using two mannequins--one that acts as her happy husband and the other her adorable daughter.
From ski trips and Parisian getaways to family dinners and ballroom parties, the Life Once Removed photo series showcases a lot of scenes that anyone would be thrilled to experience. Shot on location, she is attempting to open people's eyes when it comes to their aspirations and expectations. She writes, "I want people to lighten up on each other and themselves, and embrace their lives for who it has made them, with or without the Mrs., PhD. or Esq. attached."
