COMINGS & GOINGS
Comings & Goings (2009) is a photographic series in three parts; Migrant Women, Birds and Prison Families. The different sections interweave metaphors proposing links and connections between all living things; our desire to be free, our instinct to nest, to seed, to move and be alive.
All of the photographs are taken in the Northern English town of Armley, Leeds. Armely is a multicultural town that was once the center of the Industrial Revolution. It is also the home of the Victorian prison HM Prison Leeds.
Comings & Goings was exhibited at HM Prison Leeds - on both the inside walls of the visitors room and the outside walls of the prison, hopefully prompting ideas about communication and about breaking down barriers within communities.
It is also a book published by Bad Books with an introduction by Jay Griffiths.
