Photos from the abandoned farmhouse

 

I love these two photos side by side. They are from my Dads farmhouse and my recent trip to Slovenia. I used lighting this time and had a lot of help from Barry. It really was a collaboration, some I took, some Barry took.  One photo is actually of a living room, but they used to also use it to sleep in. The photos on the walls are of my uncle Franc, who died during the war and of my Aunt Mara and other Uncle Franc, who lived in the farmhouse after the war, (and after very long spells in prison). Both have paintings of Jesus either in the same room or through the door. I believe it shows that Jesus and Mary were just as important to them as family.

I am an artist working with photography. I like to work by using performance and then photographing the performance. I seem to be increasingly using the moving image alongside the photographs. I spent over 15 years working in mental health, whilst also practising art in a studio in Spitalfields market. I then became involved in regeneration projects and was one of the team who won a lottery grant for Hastings Pier to be rebuilt. I am now concentrating more on my art practice.
