Manna - Food, identity, & belonging (2020)
Digital photographic images.
I developed Manna for the final major project for my Master's Degree in Photography.
The project explores food as a cultural artefact and symbol of personal genealogy. I worked with contributors of mixed-heritage and migratory backgrounds and experiences. We explored the power of food to connect us to belonging. Its ability to invoke emotions, memories, pleasure, and other sensations. Things that connect people with their history and heritage. And which they carry with them when they are seeking to find a place to belong or call home.
