Memories of home

A reflection on a place called home by the Hart family for three generations.


At the end of the summer of 2014, I was contacted to make a photograph. It was a photograph of a view -- not just any old view, but the view from her parents house. It sounds simple enough at first blush, but the view to be memorialised was so much more than just that.

On arrival and in meeting the Harts, I learnt more of their story and of their family. And more of the reason I was being asked to make the photograph. The Harts had lived here for three generations, and now were getting set to move closer to the rest of their family in their later years in life.
