Within You Without You
Through the blending of images from my parent's albums, I have explored the affinities and differences between their past lives, collaging time and location in order to establish links between them. The construction is informed by the personal qualities that my parents find within each other. My father's images are predominantly used as the base image, as stability is a quality my mother finds within him, as she had a very disconnected childhood. The archetypal family snapshot is changed, by the merging of two separate collections. This union reflects the idea of Simultaneity, two separate events happening at the same time, brought together within one frame. My parents become illusory yet rational beings within the snapshots of each other's lives.
