Retracing His Steps in Time ...

My focus is to portray a personal history dedicated to my Grandad Pete, by visiting various locations which symbolise his moments in life, retracing his steps in time.
The aesthetics for my idea involves an element of construction, a fleeting moment in time, location and street photography, archival imagery such as, family albums, and keepsakes which will embody a physical or sculptural quality. These elements will all merge in to one, forming a connection to the profound meaning hidden within the work. I will look for signifiers and visual styles which I can incorporate through the photographic medium. For instance, a mixture of colour and monochrome, varied framing styles and lighting which will form an association to emotions in a specific location.
