Milieu - Catchlight Collective Exhibition

3 images Created 10 Jul 2010

These images are a selection chosen for the up and coming Catchlight Collective Exhibition. The exhibition is taking place within the Church Christ of the Cornerstone in Central Milton Keynes.

The Catchlight Collective's assignment for this exhibition is Milieu ( a person's social environment ). This topic led me to Prague where I discovered a vibrant group of various people brought together by a sad connection of their lost companion. On the contrary of the sad moment these people have non intentionally formed a group of new friends. Not only to share their own stories but to keep each others company and help maintain the group well being and distraction the from sudden loss.

These images were taken during Christmas 2009 in a Pet Cemetery in Prague Czech Republic. I was fascinated by the time and detail that went into the graves that appeared to me more like shrines to their long lost family pet. As it was christmas members of this community tendered to the graves together adding festive decoration and leaving gifts.
