The other day I posted a collage of dad through his life – see here. So today I present a similar grid for mum.
When considering dad’s collage I thought about the form of representation in terms of static or linier (and preferred the former) whereas here I’ve considered an age old issue about whether to mix colour and monochrome.
Conventional wisdom suggests we should not mix the two but I think there are times, like this, when its appropriate. I think this because the change from monochrome to colour emphasises the length of time mum’s life covered.
I like this collage. (However it is very noticeable to me that I have almost no photos of mum in her thirties.)
