Family photographs, memory and self-reflection
converge into a publication that surrounds
the experience of loss.
This publication was made in response to old family
photographs, with conceptual elements being drawn
from research into various philosophical ideas.
Each spread is made up of a pair of photographs -
the left page containing an older image, the right
containing a new one taken in the same location.
The disparate and seemingly random spacing
between each pair indicates how far apart they
are in terms of time.
As well as questioning ideas of memory and time,
this project gives way to a more personal inquiry
into a family loss. To highlight the sensitivity of the
subject matter, a second more delicate paper stock
was used for the first and last page, where text
and image combine to reveal the books true nature.
