Photography is intrinsically linked to memory. A photographs ability to awaken an experience seemingly forgotten means that I always tie the medium to feelings of nostalgia, leading to work often concerned with ageing and in particular the transition from childhood to adulthood. My work aims to reignite our memories of childhood using familiar, cross-generational objects of play. The narrative communicates a sense of loss, representative of the ephemeral nature of childhood freedom and memory. My intention is to highlight the value of this lost perspective, as I believe our childhood memories to be instrumental in who we become. My message is speculative: Do we undervalue our early experiences and perspectives?
