My Fathers Things
Wendy Aldiss’s My Father’s Things is a deeply personal and heartfelt series, featuring photographs of her father’s possessions taken after he passed away. The artist’s father, Brian Aldiss, was a famous author, living in Oxford, and the exhibition shows his desk and bookcase strewn with photographs of his belongings, and other images of both everyday and unique.
