Collage qnd photomontage have always been an integral part of my expression. The work on 'Memory' began after I had finished a very intense period of photographing in the Former Yugoslavia. My marriage had just broken up, everything seemed to be colliding in my head, memories from my childhood in Ireland, the death of my parents. I began to photograph old letters places associated with my childhood, country lanes in Ireland, old doors. This work became part of a collage sequence which I then re-photographed and put into large slide format in light boxes. There were nine light boxes in all and the work was exhibited with P├ępiniere Europe group show at the Maison des Mettalurgistes, Paris 11 in 1999.
