The In Between explores the construction of women’s identities and the development of relationships within domestic space. Relying on the share house as a site and the constructed photographic image as a tool, the project considers the social malleability of liminal space and the relationships forged within it. The photographic work draws on historical imagery of women and proposes the share house as a space conducive to re-negotiating historically and socially set roles for women.
