“I have been working on a series recently, called Dwellings, in which I create collages of houses which I have photographed on my travels (mostly in the U.S., but also on a trip to Australia for Christmas). I think this series stems from the immigrant experience, from wanting to understand how people live here. There is an incredibly diverse range of domestic architectural styles across the U.S. and within New York” — Liesl Pfeffer
