“Portraiture has always been, for me, a way to tell a story by bringing an aspect of a person to the surface in an almost narrative environment. This photo is part of an ongoing series about the ways in which women allow themselves to be treated. It is titled “Mother In A Dog Cage” because the subject is, in fact, my 65-year-old, twice-divorced mother. The door, you will notice, is not locked; she is in this prison of her own accord, and she doesn’t completely seem to mind it.” – Paula Dixon
