This series of photographs were taken when I was periodically looking after my aging father. From being a self reliant, capable and generous person who was very close to me he became dependent on the care of others, withdrawn and distant from me. I experienced his loneliness and isolation even when surrounded by those who were once close to him. In turn I witnessed it everywhere I went. On park benches when lovers had a misunderstanding, in car parks when family members went their different ways after a social event or during parties when they passed each other without engaging, in shopping centres and markets where purchases were not shared experiences but isolated activities. These photographs were taken in various locations throughout Europe in the period of about one year.
