Dear Douglas is a series of images that reflect upon the history and idealism of a war time romance. I am exploring the idea of such private sentimental objects becoming public knowledge but choosing which parts of the letters the audience can read. Through the words I display I'm shaping my view on the couple who wrote the letters, over romanticising in some moments while showing a cruel sadness to their situation in others. The series is more than just a re-telling of a private love story but a glance back into a part of history that is rarely shared.
