As your roots deepen to a place, people ground those connections.

 

Liz Wells’ says ‘history turns space into place’ and history only comes from human interaction. Memories of those interactions are sometimes all we have left, like the stories that are passed down from generation to generation changed by each tongue to give people connection to their own histories and relation to place. This residency gave me the opportunity to meet other artists from all over the world, to hear their stories and understand their ways of seeing. Opening up many new things within my photography and something I would encourage everyone to do, if possible.
