MFA Photography

Theme

Merili Jurivete is a documentary photographer interested in the relationship between public and private space and how we exist differently within these spaces. Jurivete, who is originally from Estonia, is now living in the United Kingdom. Her project “Being with Kevin” is about her former landlord, who is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Jurivete had made a special connection with Kevin whilst living in the same house with him for over three years as his tenant. “Kevin” is a celebration of a life well-lived. The moments she has captured are private and reveal the simplicity and wonder of life for the elderly. Jurivete documents the beauty of capturing ordinary aspects of the everyday such as light falling through the window or Kevin doing his usual things such as enjoying a cup of tea or reading the newspaper. Jurivete is fascinated by how the meaning of life can be conveyed through documenting people in a simple, caring manner.
