Q: Why do we hold on to certain memories?
A: Because they make us feel safe and warm.
Keepsakes is a project about emotional safety and memory preservation. The blanket (aka comfort object, transitional object, security blanket) is a metaphor for the emotional safety that certain memories can provide.
The memories have been revealed in a book, where I describe each of the photographs from a (most often than not) subjective point of view.
The photographs were woven by hand into a blanket using crochet technique. The book cover was sewn by hand and the book was also bound by hand.
