Dear Mam & Dad
Every person has life experiences, some we regret and others we treasure. Either way each individual relates to their past through these experiences. This project is titled Dear Mam & Dad, which is drawn from letters written during the Second World War by my Grandad. From initially reading these letters I then moved on to actually talking to him about his life. The images reflect my interpretation of his experiences, finding out about a life which was there many years before he was even known as Grandad. Asking questions which should have been asked a long time ago. These images are presented as a slide work and wall based photographs which incorporates archival images, my own images and audio from conversations with my Grandad.
