Stories My Mother ToldPhotography is often used as a tool to understand the past; 'Stories My Mother Told' addresses family estrangement and reconciliation. I met my mother, who I have barely seen in twenty years, to try to understand her as a person and discuss how we became estranged. Using her family albums as a starting point I asked about my mother's early life, our collective past and her migration from Ireland, to England and on to Canada. This led to me visiting the places and finding objects from our collective past to create a picture of our personal journey. This project records both the chasm in time that cannot be recovered and our ongoing efforts to build a new relationship.
