Independent Annie

‘for the soul, the house where it lives is nothing but an expansion of its own body…..The surroundings become a museum of the soul, an archive of its experiences.’– Mario Praz

Independent Annie offers a glimpse into the day-to-day life of Lindsey a forty-nine year old man who lives in his deceased grandparents’ home. On visiting Lindsey’s home for the first time Thomas was struck by a profound sense of nostalgia and realised how reminiscent the environment was to Thomas’ own grandmother’s home. She, like Lindsey, had been a hoarder of precious objects that for him hold the past.

Independent Annie explores the treasured nature of personal possessions and how a house and its inhabitant can become reflections of one and other.
