1987 Hurricane


The Trip tic shows the destruction of Emily’s family home  after the Hurricane in 1987 hit Surrey. These photos taken by her father depict Emily’s mother holding her in the wreckage. These fantastic  biographical photographs laid dormant in an old album until Emily uncovered them whilst researching her own history. They where unvalued ,unseen and hidden.  Emily has reclaimed them,  ordered them and blown them up to be viewed as images reflecting the beauty of the calm stillness after a great storm. Emily often refer to them and uses them in her practice as a way of telling how an uncanny series of destructive storms form  part of her personal mythology.
