Nigel Shafran’s book takes five interconnected series of photographs and weaves them together with the common thread of domestic scenes. There is a constant sense of forward movement that is sometimes overt, as in the photographs of supermarket checkouts or underground escalators; sometimes implicit and more emotionally charged, as when the photographer faces the inventory of possessions in his mother’s last house. But in each case these photographs deal as much with what has been left behind as with what lies ahead. They carry the inevitability of change and the psychological undertow of time passing moving forward.
