The series All About My Mother is a record of my early experience of motherhood and explores identity, immigration, place and family. The work uses my own mother as a protagonist to explore my changing identity.

The images are an emotional reaction to the changes I felt to my own identity, and the loss of self which consumed me when I became a mother. The work is a reflection on the places where we belong, and what it means to be held by blood and a common history. The work is about familial bonds, how we are tied to the land and the country where we call home.

This series reflects on hidden histories, the influence of the land and the historical impact of immigration. Ultimately the work is about life, fear of loss, and how the past resonates throughout the present within our bloodlines.
