Doing Nothing: Documenting Care

The series of photographs were all taken inside the Rivett-Carnac temporary household in Bonn, Germany over a period of 18 months and aimed to capture the daily, domestic life of Natasha and her two children, Zoe and Arthur. Grace’s camera lived on a shelf in the living room, ready to capture everyday moments, but the project came to life when Natasha brought a writer’s sensibility to the experience of being witnessed as a mother.
