EDITORIAL

Using documentary photography that prioritized home over street, Isabelle Bonnet invites us to enter British interiors of the 1970s. These photographs offer us signs of a new lifestyle henceforth centered on domestic space. There, the status of things speaks volumes, as does their number, their profusion within the working-class world, which contrasts with the spareness of bourgeois interiors. As for “taste,” the photographers hand it back to the inhabitants of these interiors without thinking that there exists a “good” or a “bad” taste.
