The Un-Attended funeralThe Un-Attended funeral deals with issues of loss, memory, identity and place. By working with a broad range of subject material David's photographic practice is ultimately trying to answer questions about his own fathers death in 2004. When he was 21 he met his biological father for the first time in 18 years. Although they had met previously he had been too young to remember and it had been a photograph that provided the only evidence of the event. At the time his father was living and working in America. Six years later he died suddenly in South Africa whilst on business. The project engages with a fear of dying alone and also explores the representation of people who have died and are as yet unidentified.
