Publisher's Description

A visual investigation of the author’s family history; a construct of historical images woven together with new photographs made since the death of his parents. Uncovering a treasure trove of family archive not intended for the family album, this new book presents an alternative narrative for the course of events that shaped the late 20th century.

Two Londoners born in 1920 embark on a series of journeys shaped by war, romance, and subsequent settlement in a seaside paradise. Unable and unwilling to recall their most traumatic experiences for their five children, a box of photographs, film negatives and letters was bequeathed to the youngest child ? a photographer. He attempts to form a coherent narrative with the archive, integrating his own pictures made in the UK and on travels through Europe that follow in the footsteps of his mother and father.

The photographic medium itself is exploited as a tool of investigative research and psychoanalytical catalyst for a son wanting to make sense of the fragments left behind.
