The involvement of human touch means the photographer moves from being passive to the image, to being an active participant in the photograph, contextualising lived experience into a medium usually limited only by its capacity to record a moment. ??Questioning domesticity in the everyday and the repetition of regular tasks, Subject to Normality examines the impact these processes have on the self during quarantine. Through the pages we delve into notion of the unknown through forty distinct experiments. The viewer is invited to share in internal conversations and thoughts, creating a conversation between the order and chaos that is being reflected upon.
