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.
Since February 2011, I have been 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 first showed the photos in public at Brighton Photo Fringe in October 2012.
