The Falkland Islands, remote British Islands in the South Atlantic 350 miles off the east coast of South America. The small settlements on these Islands fuelled memories of my childhood and offered a stage on which to explore the relationship between place and human experience. The islands are known largely by outsiders for the bad weather, barren landscape, Sheep, Penguins and War, and once described as 'the fag end of the world' by Robinson a Governor of the Islands in 1866. Conversely, for those raised there a strong attachment and identity is formed with the land. Fusing archival family pictures and my own recent photography Familiarity aims to give a personal vision on a sense of place.
