Love notes and photographs share common traits. A love note is a way to show one’s feelings via language. A photograph can serve the same purpose. Love Notes involves sending film negatives to my parents, folded into tiny notes. The negatives, shot by me, depict places in and around our former farmlands. Upon receipt, my parents unfold and ‘read’ the negatives, and return them to me with notes about what they recognise in holding the negatives up to the light, and what memories the images evoke. The resulting 20 x 24” silver gelatin darkroom prints are imbedded with fold lines and wear typical of cherished love notes that have been saved, folded and unfolded, read and reread over the years.
