Cyanotype [RAF Sock]

Annabel Dover explores the relationship between objects and memory and the social relationships that these objects represent. She highlights the power attributed to objects as markers of memory. The sock was worn by her stepfather when he was shot down and injured over Germany whilst serving with the RAF. His leg was amputated, but the nurses that cared for him washed and mended the sock. It became, for him, symbolic of their compassion. In this video, she talks more about her work. Visit the link to find out more.
