Americana: Through Closed Doors

To me this photo captures what Americana looks like behind closed doors. Through a window we see the empty table, not knowing whether a family gathered around it in joy or aggression. But regardless, American life is idealized and packaged in a tidy diorama and put on display, as depicted in this photo.
