Lies, Façades & Secret Babies
Inspired by my unfolding family history, with all its Lies, Façades and Secret Babies. In a country where incarcerating unmarried mothers and removing their babies was rife until the last institution closed in 1996. This work questions the validity of the family tree and the secrets they hold. The series uses images taken mostly at traditional religious celebrations and exists both as a photobook, and an installation where tactile objects are displayed on a light box.
