Their Present; My Past


“Change is the only constant in life.” – Heraclitus


Inspired by this quote this project focuses on my primary school, Holy Family in Mossend. A third of my life has been spent going to the school day after day. It is a place shrouded in memories. Returning to the school ten years after I left, I discovered the building and the interior unchanged, it remains the same even down to the smell. The only differences being the unfamiliar names assigned to desks. Although I was walking through the quiet building, I was walking through the fabric of time and I could hear the noises of my memories. The project features images of the school interior, shot partially through the reflections of mirrors to distort reality. By doing so I want to create the sense that I am not in the present, but rather focusing on the memories of my past.
