Ruth Garner Comfort

 

Photography & Statement Ruth Garner

 

 

Ruth is a documentary/portrait photographer who is highly interested in the habits, thoughts and mind-sets of other people. Throughout her current project she has been looking at the ways that young people express themselves through the objects and arrangements of their bedrooms.

The bedroom for young people seems to act as a space for freedom and experimentation, the walls and surfaces act as a canvas for self expression. When observing the objects and their arrangements within these private spaces we can begin to gather something of the mind set of these people. This series has a focus on females because women seem to have more of a desire to create a comfortable environment by decorating and organising the objects in their bedrooms in particular ways.

Distant Comfort looks at the relationships that people have with objects and the ways that young people find comfort in their bedrooms with the things that they surround themselves with.
