Longing to Belong
An inquiry into the navigation of belonging that originates in my experience of a dual heritage household, growing up as part of two different cultures and landscapes. The work was produced through repeated walks in Malta where my maternal family is from, and the Peak District in England, near to where I grew up. The process of walking and photographing in the landscapes allowed a means to challenge the barriers of language and geographical distance. To be able to visually present both sides of each country through my perception has enabled me to engage with the land in ways that I would not be able to in the everyday. The work opened a space to engage with family and culture and anchor a place of belonging.
