Alara Bailey: Looking In

Looking In - artist’s statement This series of images explores the idea of habits in people’s lives. From one of my own habits, I explore the idea of looking into houses with the intent to admire them or to see if there is anything inside, as I have been told that it is weird. However, after starting this project many people have admitted they do the same, but do not tell others. This project carefully considered (and tested) the ethics of photographing private spaces. It might be considered intrusive, but all the images were taken legally on the street. The project also dealt with practical difficulties: physical barriers (netting, frosted glass or distorting glass), my own reflection (I didn’t want to be a key feature in the images) and, above all, getting the right distance from the window without cars or objects obstructing the view. Ultimately, the resulting images are more inviting and aesthetically intriguing than intrusive, drawing us closer to look into the windows.

About the artist

Alara’s love of photography started at LaSwap sixth form in London, where she studied both digital and analogue photography. Following on from this she decided to carry on her studies at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge School of Art, where she recently graduated with a BA (Hons) Photography.  Through her time at the university she developed a surreptitious style which is reflected in bothLooking In and Commuters

With the ability to use both digital and analogue cameras, she favours the darkroom and working with film rather than digital. All the photographs in this exhibition were taken using a film camera with either black and white or colour film.
