I use photography as a means to examine the relationship one had with domestic space. The focus of domesticity steams from my summer taking care of my 8-month-old sister. The confinement of being at home left me wondering how my summer would have played out if I did not have to watch my sister. By photographing girls my same age revealed my longing to be apart of a space that had no maternal attachment. From photographing others I then turned to looking at my own apartment, which I share with three other roommates, finding places where out possessions have mixed together. This mixing demonstrates how our coming together through our belongings builds a sense of home.
