Forget me not.These series of photographs are inspired by the Northern Ireland 'Troubles.' At a young age l discovered that my uncle had died during the Troubles. As I got older, l had imagined his violent death through the cinematic and atmospheric deaths of characters in gangster films such as "Road to Perdition" and "Goodfellas." As a child l didn't realise the horrific violence of the Troubles. I became interested in the story surrounding the "Shankill Butchers." Each of their victims where viciously beaten and had their throats hacked with a butcher's knife. I recreated some of these murders at the original crime scenes where they had occurred. I reinvented some of the murders with an added cinematic atmosphere. For effect, I concealed the anonymous victim's identity by wrapping them in white sheets to create a mysterious atmosphere.
