Previous Personality explores Ellen Nolan’s relationship to her mother as she recedes into dementia. The artist started photographing when her mother stopped recognising Nolan as her daughter, documenting them together at key moments over two years, to explore the journey of reversal and erosion. One at a Time observes the dynamics within single parent families. The images explore an undercurrent that reveals both the inherent tensions and intimacies that arise from these complex, intense relationships. www.ellennolan.com
