The Face Series

After all, I am who I am, because of who my family made me. Without their influence, I would be nothing but a shell, lost in a sea of people.

The Face Series to me is all about filling the gaps and making myself complete with pictures of my family members. This is a picture of me holding a photograph of my late Grandmother, glamourous in her hay day. This picture says a great deal to me, she is relaxing in the garden, the washing hung up behind her, the sun on her face – to me this photograph is without any hidden flaw, it is a perfect representation of the woman she once was. It makes me wonder that if she knew, when that photograph was being taken, that I would be using it like this, would she have changed it?
