Photography for me is about expressing my interests and passions for family life and the memories we decide to record and keep. I love social documentaries and any form of recording a life, it is an interest of mine that can be seen throughout my photographic work.
To have been focusing upon the emotional and sentimental attachments that people have with photographs and objects for so long, I aspired to start my own personal project where I explored the more unfamiliar aspects of family life. I recorded a home that inspired me and revealed how we all have our different habitual and particular familiar needs to document our private lives.
I asked Roger, the owner of the home why he covered the walls of his home with photographs that hold happy memories, he replied with the word ‘escapism’.
