The following images were entered in a Members’ Exhibition at PhotoAccess entitled ‘Muse‘, 28 Sep — 8 Oct 2017. The remit invited “members to reflect on the people in their lives who have been an inspiration to them in some way. One’s muse may be a cherished face – friend, family member or lover – or perhaps someone who is an influence from afar. It is with this in mind that we invite new and existing members to creatively address the theme, Muse, through photography and photo-based art.”

The public spaces in a Tuscan town – piazzas, footpaths, church steps – are where the residents mingle and socialise at the end of a warm day. After the heat passes, these previously empty places suddenly fill with people and come alive. An hour or so later and they’re quiet again as people return home or move to restaurants and bars. This work explores the similarities and differences in the way that people of different ages perform this daily ritual.
This image was exhibited in the PhotoAccess members’ exhibition Common Ground, for which the remit was: “Creatively document and interpret public space through photography. The physical and social dynamics of public space play a central role in the formation of community and culture.”
