My Dearest Beatrice
A house clearing took place in 2015 unearthing of thousands of photographic slides documenting trips taken around Europe between the 1950s and the 1980s. As well as this discovery was a host of artefacts, including letters written during the 1940s and 1950s that unlocked an intimate photographic narrative. My Dearest Beatrice examines a tale of deep love and devotion of two people who met when working at Bletchley Park during the Second World War. Of all the slides, hundreds depicted the artist's Great Aunt gazing into distant landscapes. Alongside intimate letters detailing the couple's time at Bletchley Park, the work seeks to honour and preserve a delicate love story. They had secrets to keep for years; those secrets remain.
