Looking for Lilacs

Welsh composer and actor Ivor Novello grew up within an arms reach of my childhood home. A fact which, as growing up, I was never aware of.

I set out making this edit of images whilst listening to a selection of songs which he wrote and / or sang in. In particular his song We’ll Gather Lilacs which is a portrayal of togetherness and being apart so long.

After leaving Wales I feel more and more distant from the place I called home for so long. The streets have changed, people have moved on and life continues without my presence.
