My work considers the value of recollection, and the role that photography plays within that. 'Still Life' is an ongoing project about my 50 year-old car, exploring ideas of collective memory, the family archive, and ideology. "...I bought it 12 years ago from a friend of a friend, an ex-stuntman, who claimed that you can get three 6-foot men in the boot. (I don't know if that's true. I didn't like to push him on it). A big red folder came with the car. It's got all the receipts, tax discs and log books from its 50 years. This work is a more intimate archive, about the ten people who have owned the car".
