Bruises

Family photographs exploit us: they prick our hearts and parade our losses. Roland Barthes' ideas concerning a painful madness at the heart of photography can also relate to the transitional experience of a family as children begin to move away - love, memory, family and photographs all leave bruising impressions. By freezing and burying family images, overexposing still life objects and exchanging a photographic dialogue during a son's first year at university (when words were often difficult), I am discussing the evolving nature and desire of relationships, time and identity. By reassembling/redefining the family archive in this way, I am attempting to document the intangible, ambivalent and paradoxical process of holding on and letting go, exposing the wound.
