I am an artist, working with photography. “Photos I’ll never take” is about the family I will never have, and uses the concept of a fictional family album to try to convey the sense of grief and loss that accompanies this situation.
I have spent the last year and a half making a series of tableaux that will be used to create this album and have also made a couple of short video clips, to accompany it. In place of a child, I have used a shop mannequin and have involved my husband, family members and friends to create the photos.
I started the project in the year before I had an exhibition of some of the work at Brighton Photo Fringe in October 2012.
