A BORING LIST OF MY ACHIEVEMENTS




b.1992 ScandianoIT

Artist living and working between London and Modena. She graduated from LCC in 2016 with a BA (Hons) in Photography.  Her work retraces her personal family history drawing on her Togolaise heritage, and the idea of origins. The theme of family is explored through self-portraits in which she plays her mother and father, narrating their experience of migration –– from Togo to Italy. Her images are partially informed by the West African studio portrait tradition.
