MakE Yourself Visible
Where are all the images of us?
At the start of the summer we set you a challenge - to send us an image that captures your mothering and your making. We have received a gorgeous array of selfies, snapshots and even a self portrait. Ever image tells a story.
We also asked photographer Viola Depcik (Mothers Who Make South Devon) to photograph four local mother makers. Viola visited Jude Richards (Dance Practitioner), Jess Geach (Ruby Cubes), Sophie Lovett (Blogger) and Rachel Meadowns (Visual Artist).
We’ve started a gallery to celebrate making yourself visible and you will find many being used in the coming months on the website. Thank you to everyone who sent us an image. This is a growing archive for you to add your story to, so send us a picture when the moment is right.
add your image
Do you have an image of yourself engaged in your creative practice with your child(ren) present? They may be inside, beside you, helping, hindering, playing, running away, watching, being bored, ignoring you, laughing, crying, sleeping. Or could you create one? You can take a photo, draw a picture, make a sculpture - whatever best represents you in your dual roles.
Please credit yourself, your children, your making, the photographer. Please state that you give consent for us to use this image on our website, social media and marketing materials.
