IF PLATES COULD TALK
Hope Road started as My Final Major Project for my Photography BA. The project included Portraits of my mother and all of her children and nearly 30 grandchildren and great grandchildren. Using the Jamaica 'Bandana' fabric which itself has an interesting background.
And will include travelling back to Jamaica, to photograph other traces of colonialisation within the landscape.
Hope road is a journey of discovery. Growing up in a tight family unit of strong females; the weight of which never occurred to me until I became a mother.
Exchanges amongst siblings prove to be the most valuable tools.
Through a series of informal interviews and photo shoots with family members, I felt like we got to know each other a little better. I will continue this Project in the future, with assistance from Mead Final Project awards.
If I died what would i leave for my kids? What would be the mark I make with my time here on earth?
What would be my Legacy?
Mixed media Sculpture and digital photography and 3d Printing.
I AM NOT MY SISTER
This series was created in response to a brief about identity, and how we are all individuals. using family members belongings, I was able to create these strong connected characters.
