my own family album
After looking at my grandmothers family album I thought the next place would be my own to research. I have kept an album with any photographs that my mum and grandmother had given me, mainly as somewhere to put them so I didn't lose them. Particularly special to me is the photograph of my Aunt Sarah who died and is a photograph I revisit quite frequently. As soon as I thought of including myself in this project, I knew this was the image I was going to use along with a self portrait.
Once I had started to experiment with the layouts of these images I chose to use a different portrait of myself to sit alongside the photograph of my Auntie.
The final layout is below
Because the family album is so important to me I wanted to capture an element of that within this project. I was looking through my album and came across another view of one of my favourite memories as a child. The boating park when I went to stay with my Dad. I like the way the spine of the album is included in the image as I think it gives a modern feel to the series.
