Brenda LaBier: as i remember it...

Jo Spence went on to explore her childhood experience within her own photographic work. ...she staged possible family pictures in a dramatic performance of concealed relationships and submerged emotion. The work developed into a practice she described as a form of therapy, working through traumatic moments and reliving the intensities of childhood...(Spence 1987) Chap. 3, page 158.

This image relates to Spence's quote because my work incorporates multi-layered meanings and I combine re-enacted moments with symbolic meaning to expand on "memory work" of childhood traumas and tracing identity.
