When Mum came to visit, I had the opportunity to photograph her educating her granddaughter, bubu, in culture.
She visited, from Tasmania where she now lives, to assist her with an art project.
This ended up inspiring my Nineteen months contribution – Asma.
“Hearken ye to the Call of this wronged One, and magnify ye the name of the one true God, and adorn yourselves with the ornament of His remembrance.”
-Baha’u’llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha’u’llah
Hearkening to the call; she looks away from the camera. Praising the name of God; she does the best with learning from her grandmother. Adorning herself with symbols of culture; she remembers the unity of humanity in all its diversity.
As well as this I began a series of photographs on the transmission of culture.
A special thanks to my mum and daughter for inspiring my life and photography.
