Bridget Smith

Society documents the empty internal spaces of a variety of London clubs, from the Kurdish Community Centre, to the Masons, the Fabian Society, The Indian Workers Association and the National Association of Flower Arrangers. The photographs provide a resonant and evocative portrait of rich hidden worlds operating within the city, revealing the interior spaces where communities gather. The series explores how people express their identity, their interests and concerns to create their own worlds, expressed through artifact and architecture. The work produces a strange tension between public and private, between beauty and the everyday.
