In Passing


Through family portraiture and photographs of rural and natural spaces, I respond to photographs taken by my Mother during her time studying photography. As we communicate back and forth through images 22 years apart, In Passing becomes a project about the passing hours of day to day life and the slow accumulation of years. Photographs taken whilst I walked with my Mother as a child sit beside photographs I took whilst exploring alone. Over the time between these moments family members become older, trees are cut down and memories become imprecise. In its complete form as a photobook, In Passing tells a narrative of everyday moments, of meditative time, and of the mortality of life.
