Abandoned Dreams explores women’s roles in the 1950s, 60s and 70s, and deals with loneliness, emptiness, vulnerability and uncertainty. My images show women who are caught in relationships where love has fled and the meaning of life has become unclear. They are left waiting for someone or something to change, move or be altered. Each photograph offers a context and conveys a story, yet the absence of another character leaves the feeling that some part of the narrative has been torn away and begs the imagination to fill in the gaps.
