Pictures from an Interior (2004) is a photographic record and celebration of the house that my grandmother lived in from 1956 until 2008. She was a practical woman and did much of the work on the house herself, and had a knack for putting things together in beautiful and functional displays. But when her children and friends were clearing the house after her death, they found that many of the objects were flawed in some way – vases turned to hide a crack, pairs of glass candlesticks that didn’t match, rugs covering bare patches in carpets. The house has since been sold, and, though it once seemed so permanent, little seen in these photographs now remains.”
