Mummahood 2023

'There is a noticeable absence in the imagery that documents children's lives. There is one figure who is always present but never seen. Her presence, all encompassing and her love is mighty. Though when the children look back on their childhood they will describe her rather than look upon her smiling face as she wrapped them in a loving two armed embrace...

So too is the absence of imagery of Mum paralleled with the silence of her voice. Such is the expectation on women to be all, do all, have all, with grace and poise, without a word of acknowledgement to the staggering enormity of what actually goes into 'being Mum'.

[This exhibition and project] is a love letter to Mums. It's a moment to switch on the light so now we see Mum. We see her with her most precious ones. We see her radiance and strength. We hear her story of love, pain, sacrifice, resilience, power and courage. And we say thank you.'
