These photographs are dedicated to a close friend of mine. His death coincided with my growing interest in photography and changed the way I approached the camera. When I first heard about his death, I found myself staring in total shock, trying to make sense of what had happened and realising that I had been staring at the same thing for hours.
I regretted not taking more pictures of him. I wanted to make a series of pictures that attempted to address the questions I had at that time, how do you try and photograph something no longer present? How do you photograph how something feels? These photographs are of my surroundings at that time, areas deeply familiar to me. I worked alone as each image felt as if it was an opportunity for slow and deliberate remembrance.
