I was looking through an old family photo album one day and reflecting on how the younger me in the photographs was a stranger.  He, my younger self, was familiar but I couldn't quite place where we might have encountered each other before.  I couldn't escape the feeling that while this was me at the same time it wasn't me.   This brought up questions of identity.  The experience also made me reflect on the ageing process and how the camera documents and records the tiny changes that occur gradually over the years.  It is only by looking back over a significant stretch of time that we see the effect of time.  This project uses found photographs from family photo albums as well as staged images for which I played all the roles myself.
