'A Day at Home' by Charlotte Colbert

'A Day at Home' is a black and white photo series by Charlotte Colbert, explores the relationship between the imagined and the real within the context of the home. She loosely parallels the writer and the housewife as figures struggling to distinguish between the two. Their identities dissolving within the huis-clos of their setting and imaginings.
"They perhaps capture the surrealism of daily life, a sense of loss and confusion, the feeling that one ambles through disconnected fragments of a dream or nightmare," she said to Vogue. "I like the idea of creating little windows into a narrative, allowing for anyone to fill up the missing pieces with their own stories."
The black and white images, shot on medium format film and shown within the context of their original negative, are like surreal fragments of a dream or nightmare. Using long and double exposures as well as props and distorting mirrors, her camera becomes a portal into the mind of a fictional character.

Shot on location, in a derelict house in Bethnal Green, the ruins become a character in themselves, the murky mind-scape from which one cannot escape.
