‘The Wards’ – what happens in houses

As much as urban life is defined by what happens in the public realm it is also informed by the lives people live in the privacy of their own home. In the following series of images titled ‘The Wards’ I have explored how family photographs are being constructed. I had no wish to represent the ‘truth’ or take on a neutral position in this process as this is least likely to be on the agenda of any maker of  family snaps. Instead I aimed to investigate how different ‘fronts’ are established in both individual and group photographs.
