Trish Morrissey, July 22th, 1972

Seven Years Part 1

The genesis of a future photographic body of work often emerges, tantalisingly, in the mid stream of the working process.

And in 2001, while creating Twentytwo – a portrayal of her parents and their home – Trish Morrissey made the first photograph for Seven Years, of which — images are shown here.  Morrissey’s impetus for this new direction was born out of the discussions and remembrances that her Twentytwo project catalysed within her family.  A box of photographs (into which her parents added their Twentytwo portraits) became a focal point for shared, disputed and reinvented memories of her family’s history.
