Like most of my work, Home Life is a lyrical documentary project which started soon after I moved to a new neighbourhood at the turn of the millennium. Originally construed as a loosely structured record of a North London suburb’s vernacular, interspersed with environmental portraits of the people who were becoming my friends, it quickly transcended its original purpose and developed instead into a subjective meditation on resonance and place. Although contemporary, the images in this series often double as ciphers, or conduits for memory. They are topographically anodyne – intentionally so – in order to convey continuity of experience. Whilst ‘real’, they above all speak of an inner geography – they could have been taken at any point in time, in any of the places I’ve lived in.
