Kristin Sjaarda

Posted on Wed, 6 Jun 2012 by midcenturyjo

If you are a regular reader of Emma Reddington‘s blog The Marion House Book (and if you are not you really, really should be) you will know the work of photographer Kristin Sjaarda. Kristin photographs the “Hello! Neighbor” series. Her photos are so personal and intimate. The life of a house is the family within and Kristin’s photos are brimming with this life. It’s like you are standing at the door of a room and watching the daily ebb and flow of its inhabitants. “A picture paints a thousand words” may be an old cliche but with Kristin Sjaarda‘s work it’s true. Not an easy thing to do.
