SHAREHOMES is an exploration into the households of Melburnians who have decided to live together. From sisters to strangers, these are a wide range of houses with fascinating collaborations of taste, lifestyles, possessions and values.

Sharehomes is about challenging the stereotypes of share housing. People often think of share houses as a convenient, temporary solution while a young person transitions from their family home to their eventual adult residence. They’re thought to be dirty, cheap, neglected and loud. They’re not expected to have a sense of ‘home’ or to be personally stamped with ownership. 

Now that people continue to live communally beyond their student years, many strive to make share houses their home – whether it be through aesthetics, shared dinners or keeping good company. 

I love photographing people’s homes. I have a strong curiosity about how people live and I love finding inspiration for my own place. I set out to find share houses with unique taste and style but I never could have imagined the beautifully diverse collection of homes that are displayed on these pages. 

If you know of a unique share house that would like to be featured here, get in touch via the contact page!
