'The Green's' is an ongoing personal project exploring the ever-changing dynamic of my Grandparents, Elizabeth and Patrick's 60 year relationship. These images aim to depict the life they have constructed together across two continents, despite being confronted by close family deaths and personal diagnosis. As they grow older, their need to adapt is more frequent. As Elizabeth's decline in physical ability and Patrick's loss of memory force them onto different paths, they transform as individuals but continue together as The Green's. My style of documentary photography aims to highlight the intimate. This approach has often been inspired by my own trials which has encouraged me to create imagery that evokes empathy, allows reflection and prompts honest sociological discussion.
