An Ode to Family, 2018
“A series that celebrates life and form, and how we perceive things to be.
Honouring life span and family, this collection was organically conceived whilst pregnant with my second child.
All produce celebrated in this series was homegrown or locally sourced during a season of growing new life, and shot on my mother’s white linen (with prop assistance by my nearby firstborn).
The rustic aesthetic and use of available light, was undeniably informed, initially on a subconscious level, by the photograph ‘Der Koch (the cook)’ from a photographic series ‘Resemblance’ by Anna Zahalka, 1987 - that hung in my childhood family kitchen, selected by my photographer father. It’s a full circle homage to those who truly know me, so all images were titled in relation to the family influences.”
