‘The Matter We Share’ is an investigation into the relationship between rituals of death and nature.
Imbued with an elegiac sense of presence, the natural burial site is a reminder of our place in the cycle of life, death, decay and renaissance; where our being will be returned to the ground from which we came. It is through observing the performance between vernal blooms, the frost-bitten ground from which they emerge and the markers left in memoriam, that one is able to contemplate the inevitability of their existence, as individuals and as a part of a familial lineage. The meditative use of medium format photography allows chance for reflection while moving through this landscape, seeking signs and finding comfort in the notion of an earthly return.
