Studies in Time and Distance

The past strange weeks of the covid-19 pandemic have often caused me to think about the idea of “the uncanny” or “das unheimlich”- which translates from the german not just as un-homely or sinister but the more insidious anxiety of the familiar becoming strange. During the lockdown I’ve been staying at my childhood home, a place that I’ve known most of my life but rarely looked at objectively. Making pictures here as an adult and during this weird time, where home is simultaneously both refuge and prison, has given me an excuse to mark this time and explore my own understanding of it. In paying attention to how the spaces of the house change over the day, it surprises me often with its strangeness and how overlooked details take on new significance through the prism of a changed world.
