After finishing Your Mind & Body Is All That You’ve Got I felt that a bit happier within myself, but still felt like I had a lot of work to do. By now I had also realised how therapeutic my practice was (and continues to be) for me. Like the previous project I sat in front of the camera when I felt that I had something to express or when I felt nothing at all.
When beginning this project I had just started an MA in Photography and had proposed making work relating to my teenage diaries. I was typing them up and decided to include entries that I had written 10 years previously when I was 14/15 that I felt related to the feelings within the work. When showing this series for the first time I was more nervous about revealing the writing than the photographs.
