Hijacked III photographer Leonie Hampton is showing a selection of work from the series In the Shadow of Things as part of Firecracker’s exhibition, curated by Fiona Rodgers, found at the London Festival of Photography.
In the Shadow of Things acts as a record of Léonie’s attempts to help her mother deal with problems caused by OCD.
“Four years ago she began to help her mother clear the boxes and objects that were taking over the house. It soon became apparent that these immovable boxes carried with them the full weight of the past, and that by opening them together they had released a tide of emotions that would not subside easily.”
Our very own Louise Clements wrote a review of Leonie’s work in Issue 12 of 1000 Words Photography Magazine, found on the website.
