Class of '86
Graduating from Sunderland University in 1986 my parents are two members of the Class of ’86. Inspired by my parents’ collections of photographs from their university years, this project is a characterisation of my parents, their university friends I know today and students from their courses whom I have never known but have seen pictured and heard described. As such, I have created a range of portraits depicting my interpretations of these people. I chose to play heavily on stereotypical imagery, commonly portrayed in Western television and cinema. It is my hope that viewers will recognise some of the people in their own lives and from their own experiences in these images.
