Five Minutes From Home
'The best photograph you will take will be within five minutes of your home.' (Anon)
'Five minutes from home’ is a body of work inspired by the forgotten beauty found within the banal and neglected places within our housing estate. These are places that say so much about us, how we live and our society yet are forgotten and taken for granted.
Carlin's aim was to re-exam these places with fresh eyes, showing their beauty and necessary place within our lives. But in an age of information overload we no longer processes anything that directly and obviously doesn’t affect us. That without such infrastructure things simply wouldn’t be the same, society would be fundamentally different lacking the functionality we take for-granted.
Carlin was lucky to exhibit this body of work in full from the 13th to 15th August 2010, at the Brindley in Runcorn during 'Take Over Weekend'.
