My ongoing and long-term photographic project Close to Home attempts to adopt a pers- pective that is at once subjectively ‘at home’ and yet non-subjectively placed at an observational distance. Thro-ugh the medium of instant film (Polaroid) and associated processes such as emulsion lifts and transfers even substantial montages (100 images), remain small and seemingly parochial works. Yet drawing upon the writings of John Piper, Benjamin Britten and more recently Alexandra Harris, I aim to show that with a considered approach, complex layers of meaning in what is ‘close to home’ can be readily and creatively revealed.
