HOME DISCOMFORTS

By Miranda Gavin, 2021.

Home Discomforts (1996) is a series of 35mm colour transparency photographs I took in the rented flat where I grew up in North West London. This was home. It is also the place where I was sexually abused when I was a child by my stepfather (now deceased) who took the black and white portrait of me. I confronted him in 1990.
