‘Life Once Removed’

Sick of family and friends asking how your love life is? Why you haven’t settled down yet? Well one self-proclaimed spinster had an interesting rebuttal.


Photographer and art director Suzanne Heintz created her photo series ‘Life Once Removed’ using mannequins in lieu of a live family.

“Ozzie & Harriet are dead. So why is this antiquated idea still affecting our image of marriage? It is the reason why this Series is named “Life Once Removed.” A family relation, a generation apart, is “once removed.” So is our relationship with our path in Life. It’s passed on by the previous generation, once removed from our own. Why do we cling to past tradition as the measure of success in the present?”
