Such an unusual memorial,but one that has so much impact on the viewers emotions,such a sad tragedy,one that man has no control over. The varied styles of chairs.really grabs at one's heartstrings.

A very evocative idea for a memorial emphasising absence. The carrycot really hits home.

A surprisingly powerful memorial, which a lot of thought has gone into. It did not make sense until I read your copy. Well observed and shot, Ian.
