Abstract

This conference contribution explores photographic practice, which centres around themes of migration and the definition of home in an expanded field of new technology. The images presented endeavour to picture individuals who have left something of their sense of self behind. Within the work 'Street Flower' colour and dress become a language, and the photographs a fabric, which transform and reimagine complex personal identities; connecting people and place across time and space. Here, the materiality/immateriality and malleability of photographs is explored, as well as the importance of repetition, gesture, and performance. This reflects upon the use of technology in navigating family divides and in the creation of an impossible view. The paper is the recipient of the SPE International Conference Grant Award 2017, ranking highest out of 247 proposals received by a 10-member peer review panel.
