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.

Let your freak flag fly, baby! Wow. There is a LOT going on in this room. I'm fascinated by the rainbow keyboard, too.

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

Having worked in a nursing home, here is my suggestion for those of you who want to hug her and be with her: do exactly that!!! So many of these amazing people either have no family or family that lives far away. They want the company! Being a volunteer or even just going to visit them would honest to god make their day.

And then they became parents, and certain things weren't nearly as important as they used to be. Which is how it should be.

Don't you want to make up these people's stories? I see this one as working on the novel he is secretly writing, before he goes to work at his bartending job at the cowboy bar.

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
