This documentary project explores the relationship that I have with my siblings, as well as their intricate relations with each other. I am the second eldest of seven children, four of whom still live on our small holding farm in Llangeitho, in Mid Wales, where the project Mae’n Hawdd Pan Ti’n Ifanc takes place.
This body of work is a testament to my admiration for my family as a whole and as individuals. Despite centring around only the youngest four children, it is a comment on a lifestyle that passed so fleetingly for me and the eldest siblings, one that I want to capture in a way that my family will never forget.
I was born in Portsmouth, raised in Swansea, but lived out my teens in Llangeitho. As a teenager I despised the idea of living in the countryside, I couldn’t imagine it could make me feel anything but loneliness. It wasn’t until I left home that I realised how my love for my home had grown, and how I cherish that quiet rural solitude.
