This work focused on the 'police state' of Kosovo during the mid 1990s. The exhibition used a soundtrack of voiced testimonies, mostly in Albanian, juxtaposed with images of innocuous, peaceful, ordered domestic interiors and gardens where violent abuse by police or security forces had taken place, exploring the incongruity between place and event, and the tension between the visual and the aural. Homes and Gardens: Documenting the Invisible tried to empower the 'subject' and to break through the apathy and objectification that frequently accompanies traditional photojournalism
