The Long Walk Home

The Long Walk Home by Penny Dampier

This series of images, is part of a wider project exploring the fragmented memories of childhood. I was trying to capture the nostalgia of simple, everyday events – like walking home from school and going to the park – as snapshots of another time and place. The first two shots were taken on Milton Road, which gets the best sunsets in Walthamstow! The second three were taken in Wingfield Park, Walthamstow village. I worked with traditional methods of colour photography – using medium format cameras, multiple exposures, never cropping the image, and hand-printing.
