In this body of work, I aimed to show the viewer more than just an ‘abandoned’ place. I wanted to share a story that showed that this was once somebody’s home and livelihood. Research and exploration was essential during this project to allow me to gain a connection and better understanding of what happened and express this to the viewer. Each image has a connection to the type of person / people that once lived in the cottage and also portray the sense of ‘home’ by using close up shots of household items, enabling the viewer to connect with the work more. The images were put together in a book called “Sandall Cottage”.
