K90203 is a project documenting locations of murders, suicides and accidental deaths around the seaside town of Ramsgate, Kent. People who have no idea what has happened just a few metres away walk past these places everyday and the locations I have captured have been sourced from old newspaper reports and genealogy websites. This news is still out there, although it has been forgotten. In my choice to caption the photographs with only the type of death, I am allowing the deaths to remain, to a certain degree, unidentified, anonymous and indistinguishable. Though they have been forgotten by the majority, these photographs are reminders that as live moves on, as the world changes, somewhere, someone will think of you.
