Then, last April, when his former house was being sold, rooms, shed,attic were emptied. And hidden away, were boxes - an archive of glass plate negatives, untouched for 100 years. So, as a photographer, I engaged with this family archive - my people. I began to question how the past is remembered? A re-examination of the places he had been. But then we found a letter.
