Growing up, the memory of my parents being together faded and I continued to create separate memories and relationships with them. I never fully realised that they were once together in the same room never mind in a relationship. Through living with my mother in Belfast, I always knew she kept a box of 'evidence' that showed they where together and the effort she put into keeping in contact with my father on my behalf and for my benefit. I then later on discovered my father who lives in London, had a similar box which reinforced the effort they both put in to have a relationship with me. Looking at the items from both boxes, I became to realise the vulnerability both my parents had with the divorce and the fear of me losing out in a relationship with my father. These photographs are proof of not only my parents being together but also the sacrifices and effort both had made for me while their relationship together deteriorated.
