Inside Out is an ongoing project, which Siepert has been exploring since 2005. All photographs in this series were taken at night using a 4×5 Inch large format camera. None of the Inside Out photographs were altered digitally in any way. The shift of colours is a reaction of the analogue film due to the long exposure times of up to 30 minutes.Despite the voyeurism implied in the photographs, the light has burnt out all traces of life. Anything that could happen inside these structures stays hidden and Siepert challenges the viewer to imagine stories that could happen inside. 

Siepert is very interested in the fact that the medium itself is very present in these photographs. The images themselves show simple middle class homes from different countries and different neighbourhoods. The peculiarity of the medium creates a space in which familiar things can be perceived in a new way.

For Siepert the house is an object that reflects cultural and social identity.
