Say Goodnight Mick
“Say goodnight Mick” my Mother would interject, attempting to interrupt another anecdote she’d heard many times before. But Mick had the audience in the palm of his hand, relaying stories of horses and men, or a tall tale from youth, told with the skill of a natural raconteur. Drawing on a personal archive of photographs, Say Goodnight Mick looks back ‘into’ his life juxtaposing Mick’s image collections from youth with those of marriage and fatherhood. Reproduced in cyanotype a process as old as photography itself, this intervention injects new vigour into Micks decisive life moments. Through a process of reselection, Mick’s much-loved stories are recalled. Although long gone, ‘Goodnight Mick’ acts as a catalyst for new conversations to begin.
