|SHOW HOMES questions the functionality of contemporary minimalist interiors and how the media promotes this lifestyle as a target we should all be aiming for. By creating scenes similar to those found in lifestyle magazines I aim to suggest that these spaces lose their appeal when they are lived in and the boundaries between what is real and fantasy become blurred. The images from 'Edinburgh At Work' are part of a commission for George Watson's School in Edinburgh and represent the different areas of employment that support the cities economy. In 'Family Portrait' I have asked my family to choose the books that are most important to them and that have influenced their character and the person they are today. In a society that is dominated by technology, reading is becoming a declining activity yet books have always been integral to our family and I felt that it was an ideal way to demonstrate more than just the physical attributes of my family.
