This Bouquet engages with the natural world as it exists within the sphere of domestic and suburban spaces. Drawing parallels between carefully arranged and manicured gardens with the domestic craft of the doily, the small photographic prints have been individually augmented with unique crocheted borders.

In 2009 Dr Susan Bright wrote about Caroline’s work ‘This is the first day of my life’ which also combined photography and crochet: “Combining domestic pictures with domestic craft and elevating both of those to the status of art, her work possesses both breathtaking technical skills that weaken with every new generation and contemporary desires to question the role and function of photography. There is heart in the latter, something I feel is often lacking in much of contemporary photography... The combination of crochet, family snapshots, and a decorative domestic item make for a heady investigation into structural categories and hierarchies.”
