THE STORY

Interior Spaces

2015 - present

After working for many years with images of the natural world I turned to photographing interiors. The series “Interior Spaces” began when I took hundreds of photographs of a Victorian mall in Boscombe, England, which I visit often because my father lived nearby. Later, when I visited artist Finola Graham at her extraordinary house in the west of Ireland, the project became more focused on the idea of using home environments as vehicles for biographical studies. I have since photographed in the homes of many friends, a number of them artists, and portraits are emerging, some of which include an image of the homeowner and some of which do not. The spaces in the series do not physically exist as such but are composites created from many images that do exist.
