Jeffrey began the Judith Series during 1978 and 1979. This highly personal body of work chronicled and analysed the joys and heartbreak of ending and starting relationships. A couple appear repeatedly throughout the series, together yet apart, on a lonely beach. They stand stiffly, awkwardly facing each other, often between them a bird pierces its breast with its beak in a symbol of self-sacrifice.
