Since early 2013 I have been photographing my mother almost everytime we meet up. I first started this as a way to get back into my photography after losing confidence in photographing people when I began to suffer with anxiety and depression. Spending more and more time with my family than i had done in the past decade led me to become acutely aware of the physical and mental changes with my mum and also, the things that remain the same. I began focusing on her routines and rituals, the simple pleasures and the challenges of getting older fuelled by my own awareness of time passing by, the fear of the unknown and of change and loss but also the comfort of familiarity.
