2002-2008

type C photographs

50 x 80 cm







For the series detail, I used a lens made from cheap plastic magnifying glasses to re-photograph details from existing photographs. These included family snapshots, found photos, advertising and media imagery, generic photographs produced for photo frames and photography manuals. Re-photographed using my makeshift macro lens, the image fragments are presented as if drawn from the same narrative, with a soft focus that suggests nostalgia and the vagaries of memory. There are approximately 100 images in the series.
