One Day Young
The portrait series One Day Young consists of one hundred and fifty portraits, taken over five years. The women are intimately captured back in their own homes, within twenty-four hours of the birth, challenging the usual sterile hospital images that inform our collective image of this moment. These women exude strength, identity intact rather than the anonymous mother stripped of self. Instead of fear we are presented with triumph. This intimacy and transparency is a defiant statement of activism.

Hackney Studios is a series that celebrates the diverse mixture of creatives in the borough. This project celebrates the established and the unknown. Rather than work from an obvious list the subjects have control of their family tree. Each nomination selected the next, linked by a thread of mutual respect and inspiration. Established artists pick their tutors, and tutors pick their assistants without hierarchy.. integrity leading the way. This blindfolded approach is a unique selection and reflects the spirit of the artists and their community, all welcome.
