Walking the Dog

 

Walking the Dog, a sequence of 9 images, began as a way of thinking about sending ‘postcards to a dead man’ (my father has been dead for some years). As with Salvaged and Common Ground, narrative, the sequential, and autobiography/life story were major preoccupations.

At this time I worked digitally, initially collecting and assembling ephemera: detritus, scraps of images, typographic fragments, and text, which functioned at the pictorial level as aids to memory, as chance encounters.
