Personal memory and loss are key concepts in this Body of Work, Left Behind. Exploring inherited objects and photographs ‘Left Behind’, I assess their efficacy as memory triggers, helping us to remember family and friends who are no longer here. Acknowledging both the absence and the presence of those who are gone. By photographing my subjects, their family pictures, and their treasured possessions in their own homes, all the images are connected to a sense of place. As a result, a palpable human presence in all my photographs gives meaning even to the potentially lifeless objects.
