Ruth Garner’s Distant Comfort

Being a student, everything you own is often confined to your bedroom, young people use this space as a canvas for self expression. Distant Comfort is a series that examines the ways in which young people express themselves through the objects and arrangements of their bedrooms; this is a place that is open to experimentation and freedom. From photographs to tapestries and posters, everything is a form of self expression.

Distant Comfort explores the ways that people find comfort within their personal spaces in the things with which they surround themselves.
