Lisa Garland captures the essence of community through large scale silver gelatin portraits of friends and family in the familiar setting of their home. For twenty years, Garland has documented the unique spaces and people on the remote North West Coast of Tasmania. From her series Still Reverence, these images capture the intimate relationship between the individual and the domestic interior of their home. An abundance of objects within each space can be interpreted as small traces of a broader narrative of each subject.
Garland captures the typically considered mundane lives of ordinary people, however her hospitable practice of developing a warm relationship with the subjects translates through the lens to instead reveal interesting qualities and unique personalities. Gaining the trust of her subjects, Garland affords the viewer a glimpse into their homes, possessions and lifestyle. She speaks of her subjects’ stoicism, oddities, loss and loneliness, beauty, love, humour and resilience.
