Benchmark project and exhibition previously shown in the City Art Centre Edinburgh, dealing with the ordinary lives of Edinburgh people and beyond, through the memorial benches with their unique plaques commemorating loved ones. The benches form a collective memory of the city and its people. Individuals, both locals and visitors who have loved a particular spot, died young or in tragic circumstances are remembered. The final images are taken a decade later in 2014, in memory of Yulia Solodyankina. She was a student in Edinburgh. She is remembered by myself and others with great affection.
