I'm very sentimental I am you know

The photographic image is such a ubiquitous part of everyday lives and yet we are becoming further removed from the photograph as a physical object. This project has evolved from a fascination with our collective relationship with photography, and in how this manifests itself in the placement of photographic objects within the home.

The treatment and curation or even apparent neglect of these images is a powerful visual clue as to how the homeowner interacts with those photographs. These objects can be used as a tool of self-expression and performance of identity; often displaying the tension between the private and public nature of domestic spaces.

By examining these often overlooked objects the project creates a cultural portrait of our changing relationship with photography.
