@siandavey1 taking over the @photoworks_uk feed for the coming week. I’ll be sharing with you a couple of projects beginning with Looking for Alice which i completed last year and was recently published with the lovely Hannah Watson @trolleybooks. These photographs that make up this series explore the entwined narratives of both my relationship with my daughter and societies prevailing attitudes towards young people with Down Syndrome. Upon finding out that 93% of children with Down Syndrome are terminated following screening fuelled the project ignited me further to make this body of work. From the onset i was clear what references i need to communicate but wasn’t sure how the medium of photography was going to enable that. I stopped thinking and began the process of photographing mine and Alice’s world.. This one is called ‘Hairdresser’.
