Interim Show at the RCA

5 photographic prints from my ongoing series In Your Home. They're self-portraits taken in other peoples' private spaces, generally their homes, without their knowledge. An overlap of the private of the body with the private of the domestic space, made public through the image.

I also showed a slide projection slideshow on the wall of about 70 portrait images that I selected from this blog; as well as screening my video The 6th attempt at understanding the physical act of 47 stabs, which you can see below.

Very happy with the whole thing, I must admit.
