Final Prints

(30X24" C-type prints)

Within my project I have explored, the domestic space and the traces the inhabitants leave within their personal environments. I am taking an anthropological approach by photographically observing the interaction the inhabitants have within their domestic spaces. In my images I am looking at the idea of ‘dwelling’ and how this is accentuated within the interior, by photographing what the inhabitants see on a daily basis, showing glimpses into the everyday. My work subtly suggests the presence of the inhabitants; by capturing the traces they have left in the surrounds they have created.

I could not be happier to finally see them finished and hung on the wall!

The social space

"Let everyone look at the space around them. What do they see? 

...Do they see time? They live time, after all; they are in time. Yet all anyone sees is movements. In nature, time is apprehended within space." Henry Lefebvre

Plans are over-rated.

So as we embark on a new year, naturally we begin to ponder on the previous one; most probably focus on what we did or didn't achieve. I could sit here and bore you with my brand new set of new years resolutions, like how I'm going to grow my hair and have a longer locks than Shakira, or how I aim to be more organised, and not be finishing a uni project at 2am the day before hand in. But I know myself too well; I'll let my best friend cut my hair in about a weeks time, and most probably change my mind and start my project from scratch, with a week to go. 

So I've decided, plans are over-rated, I think it's safe to say all my elaborate life plans, haven't even had the chance to see the light of day, and so this year I have decided, to go with out them. It’s simple, take each day as it comes, don't worry about tomorrow because tomorrow it'll be too late to worry about today. And no I'm not saying we shouldn't aim to achieve our goals, I mean it is possible I'll have luxurious, long hair by the summer that even Shakira covets!

So this may seem ridiculous as I head towards a year of graduation and ultimately one of the most important years of my life. But I think that I can do it, the worlds my oyster as one would say. So wherever I may find myself at the end of 2012 whether that’s in Bristol, Southampton, London, South America or God forbid, Scotland. The one thing I do promise you is, I’ll keep taking photos! So, are you with me? 

Sorry about the long one. With love Emily x
