"This is more than a portrait of a man, but of his life, encapsulated in the room where he has spent so much of his career as a local high street solicitor. His threadbare chair, the crowded mantelpiece, the paraphernalia on his desk all tell part of the story of my father, his attitude to work and to life, and his gradual acquiescence that his work has become the inevitable narrative of his existence. Work consumes him as the piles of papers and files rise up around him in an insurmountable collective of endless legal tasks. It is a portrait of a nostalgic time past, pre-computers and open-plan office spaces, of sophisticated case management and the internet. It is a time which, through my father, lives on."
