Home is a project which explores the issue of living with depression and mental illness. It is a personal study of my family and the effects their depression has on life within the house. By photographing traces left by my Mother, Father and Brother, I documented their absence whilst capturing the constant presence of a claustrophobic atmosphere created by their illness. Alongside these images are videos which record three rooms for three hours to document their situation in real time. It shows their reluctance to communicate or socialise and works in conjunction with my images to portray a family suppressed by their depression.
