I am doing an MA in photography in London. I am working on a project about home carers. If you look after an elderly relative or sick person I would like tell your story. I would like to spend some time with you documenting your daily life and routines.
So ran the advertisement from Ellie on Gumtree. I replied saying, as I would do many times again, saying that I was not exactly what she was looking for but would she like to photograph me anyway. She said she would and we met to discuss the shoot at Waterloo Station on 28th March 2008 and she showed me a storyboard which she had already sketched out in preparation for the shoot. We talked for about an hour and confirmed that she would come to my home early the next day.
