Taking the theme of ‘Brighton’, Celine Marchbank has created a series of photographs that evoke and celebrate the sense of place that home brings.
During the course of the project, Marchbank engaged with many local residents – including patients, ex-patients, staff, volunteers, carers, visitors and family members – who shared stories of what home means to them and invited Marchbank into their homes to capture the spirit of these stories. The resulting photographs are sensitive portraits of people and place.
“Showing the work back to people who have been involved in the project has really sparked off conversations. I have been sat in a group and had a ten-minute conversation about net curtains: the curtains they have in their house, what curtains their grandparents had in theirs… Snippets of people’s lives come out when they sit and talk about or view a picture – and to me that’s what the work is about and that’s what I’m hoping will happen in these waiting rooms”.
