Suburban life is a yawn. Moms taxi their kids to ballet class; people plant flowers or walk dogs. Then again, if movies and TV are any indication, you might want to break out the binoculars, because your neighbors likely a serial killer or a bored housewife bedding the handyman.
Photography student Adrian Lesoing explored the dark side of her own suburban neighborhood in Mesa for the Suburbia: 85201 exhibit, which continues through January 4 in Room BA199 of the Business Administration Building on ASUs main campus in Tempe. Lesoing captured the images between 10 p.m. and 1 a.m., and used overexposure techniques to give the houses an eerie glow. The people who live in this area might not view their neighborhood in the way that I [have] through these photographs, she says, but it is what it is. The camera doesnt lie.
