Barbara Peacock is a successful American commercial photographer based in Portland, Oregon. She has recently started a new project where she aims to photograph the hidden and transparent complexities of who Americans are as individuals and a nation through detailed and intimate portraits taken in the bedrooms across the USA.

The people in her photographs come from different backgrounds – some of them are friends of the author, and others are just strangers who she invites to participate in the project in various ways, for example, on social media or by leaving a card with all the information at local shops. Scroll down to see this unique approach for yourself.

Her quilt brings back fond memories of my Grandma. She made all of her grandkids special ones. I still have mine. I miss her.

The classic bedroom that feels like a prison cell look. I was that young once. It'll get better, my friend, trust me.

Retirement homes or nursing homes have small bedrooms for their occupants with nurses to attend and aides to help dress, clean and exercise... it is for many the eventuallity.

A laundry box full, what is it doing in the middle of the bedroom. Cloths strewed all over the floors, what a messy home. maybe the parents work too many hours and don't have time to clean up.

Looks like this woman never grew up, still lives at home in her childhood bed with her dolls

Insert random life affirming non offense comment about youth and childhood. Agree by proxy until another offers a slightly different non offense comment. Allow third person to disagree with first two commenters..or just drink enough red bull till your hair hurts
