Personal Space | 2014 - 2015

As a result of the untimely death of the woman who had devoted herself to my upbringing, I started becoming encompassed by a darkness, a disillusionment of the daily grind and a questioning of our collective purpose. My son’s explorations of his surroundings gave me the opportunity to see the world from his untainted perspective. Aided by the Rolleiflex camera that my grandfather had left me, I began to document our daily journeys. I learnt to mimick his disregard for proximities in public spaces and was able to enter the spaces of others without fear. It was in these split moments that I would encounter my own reflection.
