‘By Your Side’ is an ongoing exploration of therapeutic photography that examines the impact of loss in adolescent years by recreating memories of loved ones. Visualising responses to trauma through a combination of self-portraiture and site-specific photography that is shot instinctively when reminiscing on pivotal memories. Presented alongside the use of the written word to reflect on the image making process. In order to undergo a multifaceted journey to understand personal experiences. Utilising the power of the photograph in relation to grief and materialising a posthumous conversation.
