CHARACTER BUILDING

The childhood of a contemporary photographer

I revisited my childhood home, in an attempt to shed light on the surroundings that shaped his adolescence. Taken over the course of 3 years, the series explores the notions of childhood memories and the role the environment plays. To evoke such surreal tones Radford uses a combination of the on-camera flash, with coloured gels. Not only does this technique induce a dreamlike quality to the project, it also suggests the artist had a colourful childhood.
