This is a series of work that studies the finer details within my father's physical body. The images explore the muscles, strain and the overall process of ageing, something each body cannot stop. This highly subjective piece of work shows the trust and vulnerability between father and daughter, capturing a moment, to stop time and to highlight the reality of your parents growing older. As time passes and we grow older there seems to be a sense of acceptance, compassion and understanding towards each other. Close is a project that shows the truth and honesty of the outer shell of my father. This body of work is very personal and emotional charge with a level of protectiveness. Close is a project that has a universal concept to it that each one of us can identify with.
