A Family Album -Then and Now
For this project, using old family photos, I went back to the place where I was born and reared, Cambridge House, 41 Montpelier Hill, (once the residence of a Royal Prince), and took photos of it as it is now. The house which dates back to around 1770s, is still intact, with the exception of what was our kitchen, is being restored by the present owner Patrick Casey. Using both the old and new photos, and my Mother's old empty photograph album, I made a Photobook, giving the old album a new lease of life. As photographs are said to leave a trace of our lives, I printed the old photographs on tracing paper creating layers between then and now.
