Debbie’ depicts Debbie’s day-to-day routine, doing the usuals and what’s happening during the time. These photographs were taken at her apartment, where she spends mostly inside.

As a freelance illustrator who works remotely from home, almost always she has to standby on her working space, in case her clients need an urgent revision or two. She often chooses to sit on the kitchen table as there is this calming quality to it, being in the middle of the living room; she could sometimes hear voices and noises from her neighbors, which makes her feel like living in a big house with a family. 

When she longs for fresh air and seeing people, she would then decide to create her own landscape inside the concrete cube she’s been living in.

Rather than portraying the outside, ‘Debbie’ is to seek the possibilities of the hidden facades that might exist beneath the person that she is; the territory that cannot be seen by the naked eye otherwise. This ongoing series does not aim to implore for the absolute nor to merely record the experience. It is to explore for what else is there and photography, as the medium itself.
