"Yosh" investigates the aftermath of the enigmatic life of a British colonial officer in 1950s Belize. My images take the form of evidence of Yosh's presence and are inspired by moments from his life. Artist Federico Clavarino sums up the struggles of this when he writes of “maintaining a tension between elegy and indictment when dealing with narrative material in which family record and colonial epic co-existed.” Blending elements of truth and fiction, documentation and interpretation, the photos lyrically gesture to Yosh’s fleeting but definite presence.
