They sit there knowing they are what is left.
They are what is left of the geese, the gate, the swing, the snow.
They are what is left of the ordinary things.
For one day a year they gather, to bring their life, to life once more.
But they know they are characters in a forgotten story, told so many times it’s losing its meaning.
But today they are the three young women of the lane as they always are.
What it is to be young in an old woman’s body, they say.
This box contains a curated collation of original found photographs. This unique set has been gathered from flea markets across the UK and brought together to create a new imagined story.
The story and collection are inspired by the lead image. The artist has outlined their imagined narrative to link the images, but you are invited to create your own.
This work encourages you to look at your relationship with personal photography. What stories will be woven from the photographs you leave behind?
