Thank you to Photomonitor the review of In This Place as part of the group show 'Ambit: Photographies from Scotland' at Street Level Photoworks.
'A stand out work is Margaret Mitchell's In This Place, an intimate family documentary that also relates to huge social and political questions.... Stunning environmental portraits balance vulnerability and strength, and interior and exterior details of their homes reveal a sense of stasis, alternating between frustration and acceptance. A limited edition newsprint publication accompanies the work, and gallery visitors who don't at least flip through it are missing out. Beautifully constructed text adds important nuances and background on these individual's stories, relating them to wider questions of class, urban renewal, and as the artist says 'choice -do we have choices in life or are some predetermined to an extent and made for us?'
