Reminiscences is a space to show my long-term documentary projects.
For several years I worked with AgeUK to document positive practice in dementia care. Paradoxically in the course of this work I came into contact with many people living into extreme old age who retained acute memories. I became aware that while I was making portraits recording their visual presence the stories of their lives and their opinions of the world were being passed over and I determined to record these too.
The first set of interviews I am showing here are with Irish Travellers. The Traveller work was first exhibited at the Cavan Town Arts Centre in November 2016 and has subsequently toured Ireland as an educational resource for schools.
My work with Jewish veterans who served during WWII with the British armed forces is now being uploaded and will feature as a Pop-Up exhibition at The Wiener Library for the Study of the Holocaust & Genocide in November
