Portraying the family through a project, particularly your own family, is challenging. The emotional attachment must be laid aside and all aspects of everyday life exposed and depicted. Beck View was conceived after the death of my grandmother; despite coming from the North she spent most of her life in rural Norfolk. Her children and their families have made their home in this beautiful part of England. My uncle is a builder and fine craftsman, my aunt works on a farm packing rose plants. Their lives are not built on commercial gain but in its place, family and simple pleasures are paramount. Our world is fast paced but theirs seems to be from another era; slower and uncomplicated.
