A book of portraits of five close friends and family. Affection grows through time spent with others; it is tactile, emotional and intimate. The book is created only through analogue mediums such as hand generated techniques as they reflect a deeper sense of sincerity and personal connection. The structure and form of the book is based on my fingerprint symbolising my identity in relation to my friends and family. Through the presence of the form I am connected to them - this affection affects me and ultimately what I create.
