South London Photographer: Girlhood

I’m feeling a little speechless at the moment and don’t know what to say.  The country seems to be disintegrating around us and racism/bigotry are apparently driving policy across the political divide. I’m horrified. I kind of want to talk about it but there’s so much noise, finger pointing and downright infantile name calling out there, that I’m going to resist. I can’t see how my tuppence-worth will contribute anything worth hearing right now.  But neither can I bring myself to chat idly about my sometimes funny and sweet children as I normally do here.

Instead I will use this opportunity to introduce some of the work I have been doing these last months which aims to look at aspects of girlhood.  I’m finding my way through this project and have no idea where it is going but I do know that doing the project has allowed me to spend time with some amazing young people, and I am grateful for that.

    1. It’s good to have the project, but it’s also a bit tricky because I’m stuck although finding ways round it in my head right now. The other thing is I’m so busy with this and that, that finding time to do any of the zillion things I’m doing at the moment is challenging! The other thing, the thing you were about to write about, is just so extraordinary that it permeates everything, which doesn’t help, does it?

  1. Great photo! fierce stance 🙂

    If you’re interested in Charity shopping in South London, I’ve just written a review on Octavia Foundation, Tooting. Have a read and spread the word on the good work that they do:

    Happy blogging x
