My photographic practice seems to exist within the sphere of documentary photography, however I tend to find the framework for my projects tends to focus on capturing a subculture through specific details and portraiture. I find myself drawn to ideas that revolve around identity and representation within culture. Spirit is a documentary project centring on a small group of Spiritualists from South Wales. Churchgoers attend meetings and attempt to connect with deceased relatives, Spiritualists communicate with lost loved ones in spirit through a spiritual medium. Through intimate portraits and objects held dear to the group, I aimed to give an insight into Spiritualism while also showing the sense of the community displayed by this particular church.
