Tracing Heritage & Roots through Cultural Transformation, 2010

This work maps my maternal heritage and ancestral history through migration, exile and new opportunities. By juxtaposing vernacular photographs collected through my family albums with contemporary images taken in East Africa this body of work maps the working patterns three generations of family adopted, from floristry, graphic design, accounting, photography, speech therapy, psychotherapy amongst other roles to consider how our heritage and environment can influence what we choose to do.
