A Letter to my past

A Letter to my past

My Grandmother told me that she was born near to where I now live in North London. I decided to send a letter to her old address to see if the new occupiers would let me visit to photograph them and the house. This could be the start of a new direction for my research into people I am linked to in some way? 

Reminds me of Sophie Calle's work where she follows strangers, hires private investigators and ultimately is looking into connections.
