Not the location of my first kiss, is about memories, sometimes misremembering and mixing things up. I concentrated on memories from the years before my first misremembered kiss. As the project is centred around childhood memories I wanted it to have a playful element. COVID-19 restrictions dictated the type of project I could attempt. The still life images were made at home in the spare bedroom with equipment borrowed from college. As I currently live in the same town I spent most of my childhood in, I had some form of access to locations. To date my portraiture has been very straight, I wanted these portraits to have a performative element, my Mum stood in for everyone. Everything starts with a memory, from that a photograph is made and a piece of text written.
