The Loved and Lost project



http://www.lovedandlostproject.co.uk/work/




Quote:

Each participant is asked to find a photograph of themselves with their lost loved one. We then return to the location of the original photograph to replicate the image. It is a chance to think back and remember, to tell the story of that day and of the person that they have lost. Imagery allows for expression beyond what we can speak of, an experience that contributes to the restorative process in overcoming the painful impact of loss. This project provides a platform, allowing others to acknowledge their loss, to celebrate the person they love and to show that the loss that they’ve experienced does not have control over who they are.



Art can help people to understand the human condition.

Judging by the photos on the page, they must have all had imaginary loved ones. ;)

Seriously, it looks like a great project and one that might help in the healing process. I was only talking to a lady last week who's husband had died 16 years ago, it was obvious that she still missed him.

I read a few of the stories and think the idea of recreating the photos without the person compared to the original gives the person who remains the chance to reflect on life with the person. The same location sparks memories they had forgotten about.

There is a very kind man let’s one of the participants inside his house and plays music from the decade the man had lived there so he could think about his father, despite his own wife being ill. The randomness of the memories is very touching.

I am setting up a bereavement group for children next term and I might use some of these ideas as part of it. One negative aspect of a movement away from faith based ideologies is that children find death harder to deal with. One in particular has gone down a really self destructive path since the death of a grandparent and help is needed before it is too late.
