About It Starts With Silence

"‘It Starts With Silence’ takes the viewer on a deeply personal journey, a search for understanding and solace. It depicts my struggle to see beauty in the world, whilst also knowing that I was powerless to help my wife and daughter. It is about living in the political landscape of Northern Ireland, a place to which Denise was desperate to return, a place that I am still seeking to understand, whilst attempting to reconcile my feelings and beliefs, and reflecting upon how our personal tragedy would have evolved. Had we remained living in England. Employing photography, texts and ephemera, I try to communicate the complexities of my emotions, while reflecting upon state sanctioned violence, forced birth, baby loss and lack of access to compassionate healthcare." - Richard Gosnold
