Objecthood of a Past Journey

"Objecthood of a past journey" investigates the cultural identity of the Italian migrants in Wales. The objects have been treasured as a dowry gift by Lina and Angelo – migrated from Bardi in the 50’s - and conserved for their daughter, Monica. Nevertheless, Monica - who born and grown up in Wales- has never used it. Utilising an archaeological approach, "Objecthood of a past journey" questions the collection as metaphors of the values that the immigrants brought with them and wish to pass on.
I have studied an MA in Documentary Photography in Newport. I work as a freelance photographer and keep working on my personal projects.
