Abstract

This article details the author's research in the home, charting the development of her photographic work over a decade. From earlier series Domestic Drift to new work The Second Shift she outlines her contexts for making work in response to her changing experiences of home. She discusses the role of photography in examining and appreciating the chaotic, transient non-Kodak moments of juggling work and life with small children. She addresses questions about the burden of housework and childcare on women and considers how photography and video might offer resistance to gendered expectations of home.
