Travellist

I’ve been terrible at blogging lately- luckily it’s because I’ve been working on a lot of new and exciting things!

I started another blog during a five month stint in Asia last Winter – http://www.travellisttheworld.wordpress.com . Backpacking is a unique situation- sharing dorm rooms with strangers, exploring together and building memories in an environment free of responsibility and stress lends itself to creating intense bonds with people of all lifestyles. I asked each of my subjects to write me a list of their choice. Because of the freedom given to us by our environment, my subjects felt able to share with me lists that might not ordinarily be shared between strangers.

Amrit Sanchar

July 26, 2012 § Leave a comment

I was ridiculously happy to have my work exhibited at the New Art Exchange in Nottingham. The work is a triptych named ‘Amrit Sanchar’ – the name given to the Sikh baptism ceremony. In this ceremony, holy water is placed into the eyes, mouth and hair; the idea was to show these three important motions in a body of work. The photographs were taken at the GNNSJ Gurdwara in Kericho, Kenya, last September. The NAE is a lovely space and having my work exhibited was an honour.
