By Daniel Keene
9 March - 18 April 2007
Bill has lived a life amongst the rambling beauty of the old family home. Now he’s gone blind, and children Helen and Michael have returned for a few days to move him to a secure apartment. On the outside Bill is stoic, resigned to his fate, but inside he silently rages against the darkness.
Helen feels the weight of responsibility – for both her father and her own family. The fragility of her marriage has her longing for the untroubled days of childhood.
Photographer Michael is on the verge of a quiet breakdown, having for years avoided meaningful connection with any human being. Drawn together in a garden full of echoes, the three discover tender memories of the shared past unwilling to release them…
