Model House

Digital C-Prints
2005

'Model House' is an accurate representation of my childhood home: A downsized reconstruction of a very familiar and personal environment, to be observed and explored from a new angle, on a very manageable scale.

The process of construction allowed me to investigate the surroundings that were once just an everyday encounter, taken for granted but not appreciated fully from a child's point of view. I was able to ask questions that I'd never even considered at such a young age.

It seemed like an obvious choice to photograph the house in the garden, against the same sky and in the same light as the real house did that day.

'Model House' now lives in the same house to which it replicates.
