THE WORK Mothers of transformation: the everyday heroism of women
This series is based on Ceridwen, the Godess of transformation. These portraits are of women as Mothers of the community: crash mats and guides to a more enriched and balanced lives of those who need support and care at a pivotal moment of their lives. This is the everyday role of these women.
My intention is to depict a fun, loving and empowered portrayal of these impressive individuals.
My aim is to capture and celebrate the essence of these women who support other people during a transformative time in their lives: from homelessness to shelter; from harm to safety, towards equilibrium. These women instil a sense of wellness for the women they meet. I want to portray their core with a contrasting aspect of their character, both ‘on’ and ‘off’ duty: both ‘at play’ and ‘in the office’.
It’s an honour to photograph these women in their daily environment and tell their inspirational and inspired stories.
I’ve been interpreting and capturing moments on film from an early age, playing with light and movement to bring characters and their stories alive. Having studied Fine Art, I have a keen eye for detail and enjoy the creative interpretation of images. With a degree in Drama, and NFTS and BBC training, specialising in Film and TV, I bring action to life through a lens. I enjoy, explore, examine and experiment in order to enhance and develop my work.
“There is a feeling of what you might call the ‘unchanging, ever-changing’ in her work.”
