Like many people, I try to keep photos of myself off the www, so this week’s challenge presents particular obstacles.
However, I am hoping this interpretation fits the bill. It’s a bit like the Loyd Grossman programme Through the Keyhole which was popular a few years ago. It’s a photograph of a collection of bits and pieces I have acquired over the years. They represent interests I have, remind me of friends and places, some pieces were my father’s.
Some of these objects I have had since I was in single figures. There’s a lottery ticket from some weeks ago I have not yet checked; a papier mâché award I was given by some children I taught; a piece of the Berlin Wall; presents from friends; pebbles I picked up in Greece; and much more.
Everything is displayed in an object I picked out of a skip in the West End. I think it was part of a ceiling.
