Kettles Yard

Kettle’s Yard was originally the home of Jim Ede and his wife Helen. Moving to Cambridge in 1956, they converted four small cottages into one idiosyncratic house and a place to display Ede’s collection of early 20th-century art. Ede maintained an ‘open house’ each afternoon, giving any visitors a personal tour of his collection. Today, the house is preserved as the Edes left it, making a very informal space to enjoy the permanent collection.

I was asked to photograph the house and capture the way that visitors interact with this beautiful space. Every afternoon (apart from Mondays) visitors can ring the bell and ask to look around. Thoroughly recommended.
