Charlotte Rea

MA work

I am interested in both historical and contemporary issues within a social and political context. These issues are often intertwined with the ideas of invisibility and displacement. Photographing the surrounding environment, I draw attention to the people who have become invisible, as their trace is imprinted upon the landscape.

I do not set out to represent these situations explicitly; rather I prefer to let my images quietly rise to the surface, allowing the viewer to make their own associations and interpretations.
