Scenes along the matri-line
In May I walked from my home in Leeds to my daughter and granddaughter's home in Newcastle-on-Tyne, stopping by at my mother's flat on the way. This solo walk was devised as a piece of feminist psychogeography exploring the spaces in between this matri-line of women, aged from 9 months to 88 years old, and all sharing the name, Eleanor. The images are of some of the things I saw, developed from 35mm film negatives using liquid light on Fabriano Artistico paper. They aim to express my love of these places, my respect for the landscape, my affection for the people who live here, and my concerns about our future.
