Late Light

This series was made while Lorraine was working on a night shift in a nursing home while studying for her degree in Photography in Carleon, Newport, South Wales. Wandering the quiet hallways and rooms of this nursing home, she noticed the small ways in which residents and their families have added touches of humanity to what is a sparse and cold building. Despite attempts, there was still an intense feeling of it being an institution; the long bland hallways, the strip lighting, the gap in the window that barely opens or the image on a television screen that is the main access to the outside world.

This work was part a module in our second year called ‘The subjective document’ and was since exhibited in the RHA annual show in 2006 and a solo show in the Linenhall Arts Centre.
