Dwelling

 
The word dwelling refers to a home, or place of refuge. However, it also has another meaning: a lingering focus on a thought, a notion in the mind that often outstays its welcome.

These stark minimal photographs show domestic commodities that are both functional and decorative. Mass-produced and widely distributed, they can be bought by most people in high-street shops. However, each item holds unique purpose, meaning and memory for an individual who has lived with them. Loaded with nostalgia, the photographs encourage viewers to dwell on one’s own past, and the objects of daily life within it.
