Packing Bananas, focuses on the relationship between a father and daughter. My grandfather was recently diagnosed with vascular dementia and was seriously ill in hospital suffering from Sepsis. When I discovered this news, I decided to pick up my camera to involve my grandfather and share with him something I love doing. In hospital, my grandfather would pack his bag and say he had flown to New Zealand. On opening the bag we would find just a banana. Despite recovery from Sepsis, his mental state continues to deteriorate. I have documented the close relationship between my mother and grandfather. My mother, who has her own health issues, is his only daughter and their relationship is unique.
