The Affective Archive


I am interested in the relationship between memory and photography and the question around whether a photograph can capture an actual experience and trigger genuine recollections. 


'The Affective Archive' is a compilation of resonating spaces and intimate belongings, found in the house I’m documenting, which have been shared through generations. My aim with the work is to overcome the disjuncture between actual experience and photographic representation through strongly perceptual images which elicit a visceral response and spark a wider discussion around affect and the archive.
