Shot and produced over two years, it offers an intimate view of the artist’s daily encounters and surroundings. This carefully edited, self-reflective work shows a world that existed for the artist at a particular time and in a particular place. Like a collision between the present and the past, the arrangement of photographs in the book encourages contemplation about memory, perception and loss. Images are sometimes repeated and re-appear elsewhere in the book in a cropped, faded or fragmented form. A constant stream of moments overlap and interact with one another, creating a multi-layered intra-relational photographic piece. This is a book about one person’s unique vision of the world. But it is a vision that transcends personal experience and succeeds in addressing broader, more expansive themes of love, beauty, fragility, life and death; themes that go beyond the individual and have relevance to everyone.1
