I recollect the past. Forgotten images, family photographs and other ephemera found in junkshops and antique markets grasp a hold of my imagination, creating narratives of lives before us. They are a memento of our mortality. The high probability that these photographs are made available from house clearances or family members who have grown distant creates a conversation within me about how we relate to such objects.
My works reflect on the importance of understanding our origins. I find a tale and a connection between the photographs. I have a friendship with them having spent hours imagining a life that is not mine.
I am gripped by my own ancestral history after having researched it for several years. A combination of found photography and my own genealogy research has built the foundations for my practice.
