Home Sick.

Thursday, September 26, 2013

HOME SICK is a series of photographs by Laura Elizabeth Hinely, whose grandmother's house provided the backdrop for a larger exploration of the meaning of home. "The project began a few summers ago when I packed my possessions in my car, drove up and down the West Coast for two months, and became preoccupied with the idea of house and home," Laura says.


I love the items she chooses to focus on here - a heap of laundry, handwritten notes, crystals and yellow light. It makes me think of the sights, tastes, textures that signify home to me: lemon trees, the smell of swimming pools, my dad's collection of heart-shaped rocks. What reminds you of your own home?

View Laura Elizabeth Hinely's portfolio, here, and have a wonderful Thursday.

There is so much that makes a house a home, and it's more than the sofas or the dishes. It's things like these photos. They're so touching, and they make me feel almost voyeuristic, peeping into these intimate flashes of someone's house. Really great series. xo

These are cool! And totally make me homesick.

I love this. <3 I love that she captured the real moments and not a house looking perfect and clean. because life is messy and sometimes it's okay for your home to be too. :)

The sound of train horns makes me nostalgic for home.

I'm always strangely comforted when I see a big mess of clean laundry like that at someone's house! It reminds me that I'm not the only one who doesn't have it all together and that's okay!

I love these pictures, especially the one of the handwritten notes and the old magazine at the bottom. I've decided to finally buy a DSLR camera for myself for Christmas, and I'm so excited about my new photography venture!
