Colin Gray began to take photographs of his parents in the 1960s when he was 5 years old. At family occasions, holidays and celebrations Gray would be allowed one shot from the single roll of film in a square box brownie tin. Over the next three decades his series of photographs has accumulated into an extensive body of work documenting his parents loving, working, homemaking and playing.
The Parents is Colin's first photobook, now long out of print which features elaborate staged and often surreal portraits of his parents, alongside close up photographs and x-rays of his parent's home, belongings and bodies.
