I’m looking through you,
where did you go
I thought I knew you,
what did I know
You don’t look different,
but you have changed
I’m looking through you,
you’re not the same.

Donna Rutherford and Martin O’Connor invite you into the heart of the home for some nourishment.

Through a series of family photographs we zoom in on a son and a mother keeping a tight hold on expectations. Overheating in nylon polo-necks that clash with knitted tank-tops we will outgrow. New images upstage the old ones. Borderlands of memory with disappointment around the corner…

Pull up a good strong chair and sit around the kitchen table… Do you think we can do that, do you? Just this once? Can we sit down properly, like a “normal” family?

“Rutherford has an instinct for delving into the troubled heartland of everyday life. Here, she succeeds in confronting our fears while reminding us to celebrate shared humanity.” **** The Herald

“O’Connor’s growth as a writer makes for compelling viewing” **** The Herald
