I have contacted my sister to get hold of old photos from my family. After my father died she did most of the house clearance and took all the old photos. Relationships are complicated and I’m not sure how much help she will offer, but it seems that she has already digitised many of the old photos and is happy to transfer them in Dropbox.

Spend a confusing day looking at old photos, trying to reconcile the happy couple in their youth with the embittered old people they became. Such is the nature of family relationships and history that I realise that this needs to become very distanced before I can work with these photos. But on reflection this has already happened, and I can use these photos. These are not the people I know and remember.

Spend a few long hours editing and printing.
