‘Mirror with a Memory’ is a filmic and photographic record of trades, traditions, cultures and living spaces in England today as we experience a transitional period in history.
The film will take the form of a visual diary, poetically navigating the director’s journey throughout the country and their interactions with a wide range of individuals, communities, and the numerous political, climate and anti-racist protests. The Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown will also be a part of this ongoing historic narrative.
Shot exclusively on 16mm and 120mm film, the project will culminate in an exhibition and limited photobook. Work in progress screened at The Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester.
