More about Home Work

Home Work is published by Dewi Lewis Publishing with support from Arts Council England and will be available to purchase on the evening at the special discounted price of 15.99 (normally 19.99)

Home Work explores ‘craft’ villages in and around Hanoi, Vietnam, which specialise in a single product or activity. Tessa Bunney spent two six-month periods visiting many of these villages. The traditional village house typically includes a large central room which is a multi-purpose living, sleeping and working area. It is in this room where many of Tessa’s images are taken, the mix of work and everyday objects fascinating her visually.

Interspersed with images from daily life in the rice fields and in the villages, these photographs depict ‘working from home’ in an unromanticised sense, where their subjects, mostly women, balance childcare with the routine work necessary for survival.
