Imagine finding out when you were 69 years old that you had been adopted as a baby. This is what happened to my father John Wallace. My project was designed as a journey to test and explore the boundaries of who we think we are. Can we be anyone we choose? Are we hard-wired to be who we think we are?It explores the dichotomy between nature and nurture. Appearance may define or indeed constrain us, but this series of photographs encourages the viewer to interpret John’s identity.
This project is exhibited at Travers Smith under the title of ‘Connected’.
