For the series Prologue I visited places that are tightly linked with memories of an early experience which shaped my expectations of intimacy. The cathartic series explores the locations and testifies to the significance of the act of photographing in order to make events actual and real rather than just accessible through something as fragile and unreliable as human memory. The work is underpinned by explorations of trust within the family and is loosely political in how sexual assault is approached within the culture we live in and by the immediate family. It explores the notion that families can be full of love but still unsafe.
