Dead people

Art made from the photo albums of dead people

 

This project is about dead people.

It seems strange that people who were once so loved and admired, and who were busy and had an impact on others lives – for example bringing up children – they are so quickly forgotten.

So this project involves the photo albums of those people. I remove the images, or buy albums where the photos have been removed, and put them in frames.

All that’s left are captions relating to who was in the photo, and where it was mistaken.

The mists of time have removed everything else about them. They are lost forever.

I keep a journal. It may be that I am hoping to live beyond my death. Perhaps, 50 years after I die, my great grand children will turn the pages of my journal – and maybe even see my art, and wonder about who I was.
