This intimate series focuses on people and the reality of their lives. The process began with a photo of my father reflecting and looking back on his life. Through the lengthy process of large format photography the subjects willingly expose themselves to detailed observation. The work searches for a non-voyeuristic approach to documentary where the subject is equally a part of the process of image making. Photography can strike a balance between the scientific and poetic which when adapted to an encyclopedic approach can democratise the images. By depicting people of the everyday the work challenges society's value of celebrity and asks the viewer to reconsider what has enduring importance while at the same time creating anthropological records of historical reference.
