THE SHED WAS OUR SPACESHIP

ARTIST STATEMENT

 

This series of work explores subjects such as childhood and imagination. Longman has self-staged a series on reflection of her own childhood in a poetic style.

'We grow up and discover that we can never re-visit such memories even if we want to. And when we're in them, we don't realise it. Yet our childhood is a time we all carry in us lastingly, as an explanation of why we may be the way we are. Although it is a concealed period of which we know nothing.

I struggle to let go, as I stand in the middle, I hold the memories but want one more chance to live them again."

Whilst working closely with children aged three to nine as a constructed part of work to re-discover the child inside herself, Longman's work naturally moulded into a series around the beautifully organic imagination of a child along the way.

BIOGRAPHY

 

Hayleigh Longman’s practice combines a personal and conceptual display to photography. Her work orients people who mean a lot to her, or people she has met who have impacted her life in perhaps little, but significant ways. Past and present experiences have encouraged the abstraction throughout her work, photographing her life and the things important to her to share in a way people can understand with a narrative that has been painstakingly put together through her photography.
