BEHIND A LITTLE HOUSE

2012

Photographed over a two-year period, the eight photographs that form the series, depict a nondescript house—located on a hill in a non-disclosed location—with the changing wild and dramatic weather patterns serving as the backdrop. The modestly-sized photographs are nothing short of breathtaking, while at the same time being quiet and understated. Touching upon the themes of universality of home and of our place in the world beneath one sky, Cosentino has left the narrative open, so that the viewer can bring their own story to bear on the photographs.
