Best Up-and-Coming Photographer 

Emory graduate JOY DRURY COX makes disquieting photographs of domestic interiors that walk the line between documentary and set design. Cox specializes in documenting a domestic status quo so bland and serene it is unsettling. Her minimalist color photographs document, straight on, the most banal interiors you could imagine: scenes of prefab homes appointed with prefab decor, featuring La-Z-Boys, generic tchotchkes and spotless wall-to-wall carpet seemingly untrod upon by human feet. These accouterments of American decor look like objects imagined by aliens, to make a home look "human." In the meantime, Cox captures something grim and essential about the world we live in, a sterility that suggests all is not right in a land of apparent calm and order. Cox's photographs can currently be seen at Saltworks Gallery.
