Memories are associated with the environments in which they were formed. This series ‘Remembered Landscapes’ examines how intimate places can structure one’s sense of self. The photographer revisits the locations of vivid childhood memories, resulting in images that are a combination of personal recollection and timeless places of escape.
The images are inspired by memories of intimate experiences and landscapes in which the artist felt secure. This procedure of re-visiting these places allows the photographer to feel a sense of belonging and refuge.
My project uses these ‘errors’ of film to try and evoke the idea of memory and loss- in the same way that some of these blurred images are thrown away, memories are distorted.
