I’ve neglected this site over the past nine months – but there’s a good reason for it. I’ve been on maternity leave and enjoying some time out, getting to know my son Lukas. Plus the small matter of buying and moving into a new house. While I have been taking a break from shooting new work for this project it is by no means finished with. I have been keeping in touch with my project participants and have visited those who live locally – with baby in tow. I wouldn’t be forgiven if I left him at home.
I used some of my return to work days to design a newspaper to display some work produced for the Roma Matrix project that I was involved in last year. And I’ve just learned that I’ve been given funding by Arts Council England towards a small exhibition of my Greater Manchester Roma work at Salford Art Gallery from December. More about that later.
