Photography > The Bedroom

The Bedroom series investigates how the natural light within the room changes subtly throughout the day to conjure up the role of the bed as a place of comfort and safety. The project consists of nine images where the succession of morning sunshine to afternoon light documents the passage of time. Light envelops the bed creating a milky, dreamlike state. I am interested in how the light creates a mysterious mood and how the bedding takes on a humanlike quality. Within these folds, the weight of the blankets and the lightness of the sheets allude to notions of security and become a domestic place of privacy. It is in this deeply layered space that I can begin to unravel my ideas surrounding the bed as a place of sanctuary.
