Miv Watts has harnessed the skills of her old friend Photographer Hugh Stewart and together they decided to create a book featuring the Portraits and Homes of some of their mates and some other free spirited, free wheeling Nomads.
This book is a backlash to neatness, minimalism, order, and over homogenised homes. It focusses on the wonderful, messy reality of life. It tells stories of adversity and the challenges of over coming the kind of tragedy that all of us, at sometime in our lives, have to encounter. It dispels the punishment we all have to hide, while we endeavour to endure the pretence of eternal happiness, it makes us aware that comfort and contentment is much more attainable by living an authentically genuine life: This book is not about how we SHOULD behave. This book is about Warts and All, being comfortable in one’s own skin, living with the sums of our parts and facing the World head on.
