I have revisited locations from my childhood in order to both alleviate and explore my feelings of nostalgia creating photographs that aim to represent my feelings of yearning for the past and love for the landscapes that line my memories.

My work has emerged from revisiting the family album; the photographs I found there prompted a number of memories to arise, and feelings of loss and yearning towards them. The pain caused by this longing for the past was only soothed with my memories.

Photographically I attempted to recreate these memories in a bid to numb the nostalgia I feel for home. The impossibility of returning to that time and place is however matched with the impossibility of visually recreating what I hold as memories. What my photographic exploration attempts to create is a confirmation that the self I see in the family album is gone. Instead I can only create an impression of what I see before me, my journey through the landscapes of my home.

These images are but a glimpse into my memories, each photograph taken in a moment I knew would not last yet the photograph would. They are an attempt to actualise, in some small way, the landscapes I yearn to belong to again, to own a piece of where I am from and take it with me wherever I go.
