The Garden Room
Charlotte Eve Streeter is a photographer born in Northampton and based in South East London. Primarily shooting on film, she uses her immediate surroundings, friends, and family as her subject matter. Her artistic practice focuses on the archival; keeping scrapbooks, journals, and printed books to document the changes of each passing year.
Her series “Looking Up” was inspired by the confinements of lockdown. The work explores longing, curiosity and nostalgia.
At a time when the majority of planes were grounded, the sight and sounds of a plane took on new resonance. The sky is both ephemeral and everlasting. Changing from moment to moment, it is also a constant that unites us all, no matter where we are in the world.
Lockdown encouraged people to reflect on the everyday experiences and connections that we typically take for granted. Unable to travel, many of us found ourselves longing for the company of loved ones and romanticizing people, places and things that otherwise pass us by. The Northampton Lift Tower series presents the viewer with an image of the landmark that is as curiously refreshing as it is sentimental.
All works are for sale and hire with a portion of the proceeds going to The House of St Barnabas Charity.
