A series of photographs taken of my family home and exhibited at the Viewfinder Gallery, London and the Horsecross Gallery, Perth.
A house is bricks and mortar. A home is a place where we have a sense of belonging and an emotional attachment: somewhere we create usually with others. These photos document the house that was my family home for 60 years. They celebrate a family growing up together and reflect different times in their lives. People, trends and fashions have come and gone, whilst evidence is frozen in time around the home. This is a family photo album but it doesn't show births, weddings, or other key events; it documents the everyday things that made up our lives together and made our home our home. They are uniquely personal but they also allow viewers to reflect on their own experiences and memories.
A photo book of the work is available from :
