Artist's Description

For the longest time I dreamed of a wild adventure in Italy. In April 2008 that dream became an extraordinary reality.

Our visit to the forgotten city of Pompeii remains a highlight of our trip. The images and stories from this archaeological site will remain with me for the rest of my life.

On August 24 in the year 79 A.D. the volcano Vesuvius exploded, taking the town by surprise. In just two hours the entire city of Pompeii was completely buried under a deadly shroud of ashes six meters deep.

The tragic deaths of the Pompeians has been immortalised by the casts that were created by filling the body space that was left by decomposed remains.

All that remains is a humbling photograph, taken inside the Forum Olitorium, an outside area where they now store a wide variety of archaeological materials. As I peered through the iron gates, I felt saddened to see this person stored amongst the relics with the same disregard as a pair of old shoes. After all, this was once a living person who had a rich and diverse life and now, this is all that remains.
