My Mother as She is Now

Following My Mother’s Unseen Archive, this collection of photographs further fill the gap in recordings of my mother’s life - documenting her as is she now and as I’ve only ever known her to be.
The photographs feature in a publication alongside my dissertation, “Language is compliant; but things are resistant”, which researches into concepts surrounding place and identity, nostalgia and home and the notion of the Unseen Archive in relation to personal belongings.

“Language is compliant; but things are resistant”: Construsting my mother’s Unseen Archive, spiral bound 20x23cm, 62 pages
