The starting point - a selection from the original forty images
The original outline of this research was to investigate social memory, focusing on cultural memory; exploring the notion that photographs are an aide in the recollection of key moments in our past, related to the images displayed in the family album. Also to address questions relating to the photographs we take and how we use and interact with them as documents. In addition it was to challenge the indexical nature of the photograph within the context of the family snap.
The following images are a selection taken from a wider body of work and were submission for the qualification of MA by Research in Contemporary Fine Art Practice at Leeds Metropolitan University.
