Leigh Davis: DEBRA FREEMAN, ROOM 1006


April 2010

“Debra Freeman, Room 1006” (from “Residence” series), Archival Pigment Prints, 43″ x 55″

My photography projects are investigations of how people utilize, inhabit and conceive of their living spaces. Residence is a project I conducted at a residence hall for women located within the YWCA of Brooklyn. For two years I worked in this community, visiting twenty-five women in their individual rooms.

I developed a process that focused on forming relationships, resulting in a series of photographs. These images of intimate spaces capture the dialect between engagement and voyeurism that has been fundamental to my practice.
