Alexandra Akigg explores photography in a narrative, documentary and fine art way, allowing her work to have a sense of ambiguity to it. By using analogue as her main medium of choice she is able to create work in a much more thoughtful and meaningful way. Akigg revisits her childhood home many years after having moved out, the return to the home holds a feeling of familiarity, yet unfamiliarity at the same time. She finds herself drawn to the traces of childhood, that are no longer hers, but those that now belong to someone else. This body of work focuses on reconnecting the past with the present. The techniques of analogue processes used in these images, allows the photos to communicate a sense of nostalgia.
