The Alternatives: Second Year student Jo Randall exhibits at Cambridge Art Salon


It’s implied that house ownership is a rite of passage much like starting a family or having a career. With the average wage in Cambridge around £28k, and the average house price apparently £420k, home ownership isn’t going to be a reality for anyone who isn’t already on the ladder. If you live in Cambridge, a mortgage for three times your salary will probably not secure you a flat or house. I wanted to explore how people live when they step away from society’s obsession with bricks and mortar, to investigate the alternatives to house ownership and see the lives people build in the unique places they live.
