For as long as I can remember, I've been fascinated by analogue photography. I especially love looking at old photograph's and imagining the narrative behind each captured image. Later on this year I will be adding works which feature both my own photography, and the vintage photography of others. All these pieces will be adorned with fabrics and paint, in the same way I've produced this piece.
Memorial pays homage to film photography. For me, film produces not just the image in front of you, but it captures a memory in the way that I remember things; through a nostalgic lens, and highly romanticised. It's the dreamy quality that's frequently found imparticularly with polaroid and pinhole images that I find so alluring.
The sparkly blue tombstone buildings make another appearance, only this time there's a number of them living on in the safety of little concentric capsules, and replicated by joyful fabrics, all symbolic of the nature of film: it's not dead yet!
