Part of my body of work which looks at the borders of fact and fiction in photograhy. I combine found, anonymous photographs to create new images which interrupt the conviction that photographs might act as fixed memory. Can imagery become untethered from nostalgia? Playing with layered photographic images, sometimes presented on tracing paper, sometimes on fabric and combined with stitching or quilting, her combinations present fragmented frames from forgotten lives. Through their memories and traces, presences and absences, she suggests alternative histories, possible futures and uncertain pasts.
