Laura J. Padgett
Laura Padgett’s residency took place from 17 – 29 March. She spent some of her residency researching at the port of Dover, talking to people in Dover and listening to their stories. Of her own work Laura says ” Reflections, transparency and shadows become tactile; windows become barriers, holding off the viewer while creating another visual layer; these images mesh into complex images that tell stories. Sometimes I add short phrases or sentences to augment the stories the photographs tell.”
Laura’s image for the 10 freestanding signboards in Dover town will be going up on 20 May and will stay until 17 June .
