This project takes the image of the moth as a motif for a deeply personal exploration of loss twenty years after the death of my mother. The traces left behind by these moths form shadows which speak of the spaces left empty by death, physical and emotional; an expression of the stillness of grief decades after loss. The moth is a creature with a mysterious reputation. It is ever-prevalent yet illusive and has long been associated with night, darkness and the human soul. Using the motif of the moth this project is a search for the trace left behind, capturing these fleeting visitations with photographic images, exploring the threads of light which bond the moth and the photographic image.
