Muriel Sylvia
2013
-
Muriel Sylvia was my paternal grandmother. She died when I was 12. She suffered from Alzheimer’s and Dementia and, although I saw her on many occasions, looking back I never really knew her. In 2012 I came across a box of old family photographs I'd never seen before. Could they help me discover who the ‘real’ Muriel Sylvia was? Taking on the role of the archivist, and using old family photographs, the project explores the relationship between the photograph and memory, and reflects on the photograph as object.

The project is presented as a handmade book inspired by the family album.
