"In these images Verene atomizes the wounded, struggling, poignant characters of a small-town, lower-class American life with its pregnant teenagers, schizophrenically decorated living rooms, dejected elderly, and prematurely forlorn children. From the grubby yellow pillow where Verene's Grandpa Bill rests his weary head to the obviously cherished, hugged-too-closely pets, Verene uses minute details to enlarge our understanding of people we might otherwise write off as insignificant."
