My work is inspired by my personal experiences of family secrets. I found that my family's photo albums and videos failed to represent what I actually experienced in my childhood. They do not reveal the stress or pain felt within this lifetime, neither do they reveal the truth; they simply offer a note to say 'I was here and I existed', nothing more and nothing less. The family album is the evidence of our existence for when we have moved on. Due to this discovery, I have made it my mission to observe and document my family and my peers through key journeys of their lives, producing physical evidence not just of their existence, but also as a document of the real story to be recorded for posterity.
