Domestic Photographs by Madi Chambers

Our featured artist today is Madi Chambers. Madi is currently based in Ontario, where she makes photographs that meditate on domestic spaces.

These domestic photographs are quiet and seem peaceful in way, as if they are simply contemplating their interior views. Objects – yarn, and a Christmas tree, in two photos – are deliberately posed to have a different interaction with the space than they normally would. For example, yarn which would normally sit quietly, hidden away in a basket, is strewn over the floor and seems to engulf a chair, the only object in the room.

Madi’s Move series captures a similar mood, with photos of unnamed places and scenes that collectively create a sense of forward momentum and change. More of Madi’s works, as well as her set stills and creative journal can be found on her website at
