Amongst my late parents’ analogue snapshot collection is a photograph of two smiling strangers. Written in bold blue pen across the front are the words Happy days!!! in dad's distinctive handwriting. 
Ironically, snaps of a bygone era are now physical reminders of what has been lost; the halcyon days of youth long gone. A gap exists between past and present, but a photograph is more than just a visual prompt, it is a trace that offers a direct link to the past. 
Combining my archival snapshots with contemporary imagery of places, trees and flowers I collapse time and weave new narratives.
