My work is a personal narrative of childhood hopes and dreams, my daughter has become a representation of a younger self. Becoming a parent is a stark reminder of the passage of time, with the realisation that life is short, giving thought of lost dreams and forgotten pleasures. The use of the lensless cameras is important, as it is reminiscent of a nostalgic past. The soft focus gives a dreamlike quality which adds to the atmosphere and the light leaks and flare implies to me hope of regaining those innocent childhood aspirations. The slow shutter speeds which allows for the blurring of moving figures produces ghostlike apparitions creating an ethereal mood which gives a surreal mix of fact and fantasy.
