MANNA - Food, identity, & belonging (2020)

MANNA was developed for my Master's Degree (MA) in Photography through Falmouth University. Working with contributors of mixed-heritage and migratory backgrounds and experiences, the project explores food cultural artefact and symbol of personal genealogy & its power to invoke emotions, memories, and all manner of sensations both pleasurable and problematic. These qualities make food an expressive symbol for who we are and what preoccupies us as individuals and society in general.
