Be sure to check out Neil Binkley, photography consultant’s, article in PDN about Dave Moser’s Housewives series. It’s a nice read on the project, and discusses the genesis of the project, including the importance of housewives in our culture.

The past 12 months have also been exciting for Dave, since he’s won several international photography awards. Check out Dave’s winning images:

  1. I was with Dave most steps of the way through this groundbreaking series. I watched Dave and the work evolve and grow. Dave’s intention is to encourage social change and to create awareness through his photography. He has done that. Dave’s subjects trust him to reveal the truth. The challenge was to tell enough of the story to keep viewers interested and curious. Perhaps to see themselves, family and friends within the images. While the work has a thread of vision the personality of each subject comes through in a unique way. Looking forward to seeing how the commercial and fine art communities respond. Can’t wait to see Dave’s next journey on the road less traveled.

  2. This is a very inspired body of work. It unravels every preconception you might have about the word housewife and leaves you wanting more. I was interested in this exploration from the moment Dave mentioned it and actually wrote some opening thoughts. However, words really can’t do this stuff justice. You just need to see it to feel it. Congrats Dave.

  3. Dave,

    I loved your work when I first saw it. As a fledgling photographer myself, it was a thrill to witness first hand how you put your tremendous creativity to work. Thanks for letting me be one of your housewives.

  4. I too am grateful to have been included in this project – even though I loosely fit the definition of “housewife” anymore. My life has changed so much in the past few years and I feel like these photos are a snapshot of a particular time and place in my life – when I was neither here nor there. They capture that feeling of ambiguity. Thank you for that. Melissa Tevere

  5. Congratulations, Dave! The moment I saw a few photos from this project, i knew I wanted to be a part of it. What an honor. And thank you for letting me be a part of the housewives project. I had a great time working with you and your team of extremely talented artists. Fondly, Seasun Zieger
