“Erin Dodson’s Strange Light, Suburbs is a series of digital images she began on Instagram, and later continued to develop with a full frame camera. Based on the experience of growing up in the suburbs of Kansas City, Dodson was inspired by the eerie nostalgia that arose when she noticed the lights and sounds from high school football games in the fall. The feeling reminded Dodson of the terror she felt as a teenager at the impending winter, and the mounting responsibilities of growing up. She recalled the nights in the woods between houses, building things out of branches by the old broken down car, trying to buy cigarettes, lighting candles in the tunnels that ran under the highway, the streetlights casting orange and green light through walnut trees at night, driving and loitering. Observing the colors of the light in the suburbs of Kansas City, the half-tamed plant and animal life, the idyllic parks and winding, plotted streets, all ignited the melancholy longing of suburban adolescence.”
