Shaping Who We Are

‘Shaping Who We Are’ is a body of work that looks at how the identity of family members are shown through personal possessions. This could be through memories, achievement, education, childhood, or some other form. These objects are our own personal keepsakes – Invaluable to the person who owns them as they are key to that individual’s memory, and yet meaningless to a complete stranger as they hold no attachment or memories to them. I felt that using family members as my subjects helped to enhance the meaning of each personal item as everything was linked, rather than photographing strangers and each photoshoot having no connection to the last. I decided to photograph each family in the same scenery as this meant all of the 4 photos would be connected and recognised as being the setting of a family home.
