Photographer Margaret Ellen Burns’s Mission to Photograph 1.000 Bedrooms Around the World.
Photographer Margaret Ellen Burns from Sydney, Australia, gives us a peek into those secret worlds as she treads forward on her mission to photograph 1.000 bedrooms with their people in them.
Margaret Ellen Burns explains how she got the idea for 1.000 Bedrooms:
I wanted to start taking portraits – it’s something I’ve always been very interested in but was always too shy to approach people. Beginning with the idea that I wanted to take a lot of portraits with a common thread running through the series, I chose the bedroom as a common location because it meant that I could photograph people anywhere, without needing to drag them to a particular place or imposing a scene on them which isn’t necessarily anything to do with them personally. The personal element of the bedroom is a really interesting backdrop, as well as prompting interesting reactions to the camera from the people who participate.
