Alternatively named as "Angels", "Grandad's project" focuses on the wildfowl occupying a duck pond that my grandfather and I frequently visited before his death. I visited the pond, hoping to feel his presence one last time, so to speak. I photographed the landscape and foliage before moving onto making images of the wildlife. Taking influence from Hans-Peter Feldman's work, I photographed the angelic forms of swans and seagulls, attracting the latter with pieces of bread thrown into the sky, giving the impression of literal angels descending from the heavens. Due to having a shared interest in wildlife with my grandfather, the experience was comforting. I felt that it was a respectful send off and goodbye to him.
