The whole house is shaking.
The sequence of photographs represents the rhythm of domestic life and how my father’s dependence on heroin has impacted this. The photographs are set around the small farm where my Mother and Father raised my sister and I. However difficult at times, we had a charmed life growing up in a static caravan. Our home sat quietly in the field with walls entangled with Ivy.
From a mother’s perspective, at what time do you feel it appropriate to tell your children the truth about their father’s addiction? Or will this be left for them to later discover?
Throughout this cathartic body of work photography is used to create an understanding of my families unconventional dynamic. Furthermore, to examine my feelings of apprehension that permeate the balance of daily life and to work through a lifelong inquisition of the matter.
