Christine Welch


Contemporary Photographers


“When I first outlined the direction of this photographic series I decided not to record the vast polished spaces of showy civic buildings or monuments of high culture. For me, those kinds of interiors embody an entirely different brand of public mythology than these more familiar places, and, in any event, they are already well documented. I wanted to investigate spaces which are more generic and would perhaps be seen as archetypal of the way most of us live.” - Christine Welch about her series Commonplace
