Working-class homes, such as Nan’s, were the subject of a series documenting unseen interior spaces. Through voyeurism and symbolic snapshots, it reflects my childhood experience and explores changes in the working-class aesthetic over time. In this project, we challenge viewers’ perceptions of the social system and inform them about the perspectives of individuals within the working class. Images included in this series, which depict residents of my grandparent’s home, express a strange tension between public and private, emphasising societal expectations versus reality. Using family archival material and investigative snapshots, participants in the overall project communicate the shift in home environments, challenging so-called conventional observations within these personal spaces.
