Feverfew

Lowri Hawkins

My project, Feverfew, sits in the realm of documentary and auto biographical photographic practice and invites the viewer into a personal story about family relationships. My grandparents live up on the north west coast of Scotland, 389 miles from my family and I, who live in Shrewsbury. Their decision to move up there was made when they were in their fifties and they have continued to live there up into their eighties and beyond. The photographs were made in a single, yearly trip, documenting their lives and surroundings. The narrative slowly develops, giving away clues about each character and their individual story. The project deals with themes of isolation, distance and intergenerational relationships. The landscape is an important feature in this work and acts as an anchor for the project as well as a fourth character to the story.
