I’ve grown up

In my degree piece titled I’ve grown up, I wanted to address the issue of human memory. To address the aspect that at a certain stage of life each of us from a carer becomes one in care. A person who was once the heart of the whole home suddenly requires care, and the unnatural silence of the rooms intensifies this phenomenon. The presented photographs are the result of this silence, not only audible in abandoned rooms but equally strongly visible in the minds of the ones in care.
