This series follows a man through his journey around his home in a suburb of Leeds. The unremarkable story becomes poignant and remarkable through the time span of the collaboration as we follow Uncle Des from the age of 58 up to his death aged 84 in 2014. For over 25 years Matthew followed his uncle documenting the everyday habits and quirks that we recognise in ourselves and in our own individual habits and how we utilise our space. Seeing Des struggle to understand a microwave or choose between potted plants or caught in flagrante with his annual task of cleaning the windows at Christmas, uncle offers a unique insight into how time is spent at home and ultimately slowly through these images we follow Des into his final moments.
