LOSS AND MEMORY
An evocation of my parents, a poignant study of their personal possessions. After their deaths in 1997 and 2000, I found myself with the solitary task of closing up their home and removing all of their possessions before their home was was sold. A sad and emotional task of handing for a final time, a life time of objects, modest and well chosen items. It was a time of enormous sadness and refelection.
