Siege reconsiders the proverbial expression “a man’s home is his castle” with this group photography exhibition presented at the Kala Gallery. The phrase initially referenced the principle of individual privacy that is fundamental to the American system of government, yet it seems to have expanded to define a nation of citizens inhabiting their own private fortresses. Siege explores suburban tract developments, whimsical 1930’s fantasy castles, the contemporary ghost town, and stately homes under siege by the ravages of nature, time, neglect and decay.
