No Place Like Home

Photobook Project 2018

No Place Like Home was shot over a period of three months using Polaroid and instant film cameras, chosen for their unpredictable, unreliable results. This can be seen as a personal response to spending increasing amounts of time in the old family home with an ageing parent and the altered dynamics it brings, where relationships and memories are in a constant state of flux: parent, daughter, adult, child and carer. Families today are increasingly more scattered and with an ageing population, the book No Place Like Home questions notions of personal identity and belonging. The medium used enabled a varied response to a repetitive visual landscape very familiar to the artist and reflected the out of place sensation experienced from being in this environment.
