I began this project with the intention of trying to portray my loved ones in ‘’portraits’’ that only contain objects as I wanted to explore still life photography. I considered using items that they treasured or even things that I felt people who know them, would associate with them. I initially found this to be more difficult than I had anticipated as I was not based in Liverpool with the rest of my family, but in Chester for university. Travelling between the two cities was not possible due to restrictions such as the tier system and eventually the lockdowns. I tried thinking of ways I could continue without breaking any restrictions and decided to photograph items I had with me in Chester, that belonged to me that reminded me of my loved ones. Photographing things that made me less homesick and brought me comfort during a difficult year.
