About the Work

My younger daughter, Hattie, was diagnosed with childhood leukaemia in 1995. She was two-and-a-half years old.
There then followed a long period of successful treatment at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children. During our special days out, Hattie would like to be taken to the British Museum, usually to see its outstanding Egyptian collection - a particular favourite of hers, then and now.
I photographed part of the work in the museum and the rest in the temple of Rameses at Abu Simbel a few months later.

″I still use the same approach to my work: I get an idea, think of the title and then make the work. So not much has changed since 1964″
