Bedrooms Observed

Bedrooms Observed is an identity-based photography project that seeks to explore the importance of personal environments in the formation of identity. Taken across the UK, Aaliyah observed young adults' living spaces taking portraits on a medium format camera and polaroid.

We spend so much time in our beds and for many it's a place where we go to feel happy or when we feel sad, to relax or to dream. our most intimate thoughts and moments are spent here and photographing young people coming out of the global covid-19 pandemic also opens a window into where for a time people were trapped.
