KEREN SEQUEIRA - 'LIFE IN A SMALL ROOM'
Lockdown forced Keren to rethink her project. She came up with the idea of photographing the space she lives in and revealing just how isolating it is. She shares the room with her teenage brother, and her family also received a letter from the NHS determining isolation for 12 weeks. Sharing this small space is a challenge indeed. Even to get this one shot was a struggle. This image is a rare chance to see into another person’s most intimate space. Because she can’t go out, Keren was inspired to push herself and create something at home in Hounslow.
Keren was born in India and moved to the UK at the age of two. She has a background in music and developed a love for the arts from a young age. In 2017 she made the decision to pursue her passion for Photography and study at university level. Documentary photography and the family album are her two primary interests, and a lot of her work explores themes of family and everyday life. She is inspired by William Eggleston, Stephen Shore and Richard Billingham.
