‘I was beautiful, wasn’t I’
What began as an interest in a complicated and non-maternal dynamic, very quickly transitioned into two women, the photographer and the photographed, trying to understand the impacts of emotional trauma. This project uses experimental imagery and the family album to begin to understand how we shift through life, evolving into new, more protected versions of ourselves. This new type of interaction has enabled me to relearn who my Grandmother, Margaret, is as a woman, independent from all familiar connections. Margaret’s life has been burdened with the wounds from love, loss, family and time. The repercussions of her experiences have reframed how she interacts with those around her, thus transforming her ability to love and be loved.
