Dr Lily Pond is a personal response to the experience of my mother’s early onset dementia. Dr Lily Pond was a playful pseudonym she invented for her literary/academic work upon receiving her doctorate. The image has been appropriated from a professional studio portrait taken at the time. In a space where fact and fiction are forever blurred and reconfigured in the mind, perhaps she is becoming Lily now.
