Home and Home Again Exhibitions
This project highlighted the various and varied people of the Allen Valleys, the place I call home. In such a small area we have an eclectic range of people and some from all around the world, from Russia to Ecuador. The portraits were taken between 2013 – 2014 and exhibited in the local art gallery, The Forge in 2014. The home project proved so popular that a follow up was inevitable. More portraits of the many characters of the Allen Valleys. The portraits for this one were all shot in 2016 and exhibited at The Forge again in 2016.
You me and autism
YOU ME AND AUTISM TOO
The follow up project was to take portraits of successful, celebrity or famous autistic people. The idea was to show any autistic individual that nothing is out of their reach. The portraits were taken between 2017 – 2019 and have so far been exhibited at Inkwell arts in Leeds, The art house and Mental health museum in Wakefield. And will be shown at City arts in Nottingham in 2020.
