I met Gerald in 2014 and was drawn to his deep connection to his home, where he was born in 1933 and lived until his passing in early 2018. Gerald was the last surviving member of his immediate family, including several older siblings. Our shared passion in photography – combined with my curiosity about Gerald’s everyday life - meant that an enriching friendship developed. I used Gerald’s 1960s SLR to photograph him in his home, as well as focussing on the physical aspects of the building, the garden and the traces of his belongings, which acted as tangible conduits to the memories and emotions that Gerald relayed as anecdotes.
