Meet Your Makers
Over the past two decades, advancements of digital technologies have gradually intercepted every corner of our day-to-day lives. In 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic only accelerated this and saw many artists adapt their practice to survive, and ultimately, progress the demise of some traditional arts and crafts. Inspired by my own revitalised respect for more traditional ways of working after being isolated for much of my degree, this project is a photographic tribute to those keeping these practices alive. By capturing their process and engaging in meaningful conversation, I am sharing the individual stories and experiences of local artists. In turn helping others to understand the true challenge of being a traditional or physical artist in today’s digitised society.
