In 2015 I was invited by the Guernsey Museums and the Guernsey Photography Festival to become the artist in residence on the island of Guernsey with the idea of developing a project based on the island’s social housing communities. The Guernsey Museums and the Guernsey Photography Festival had come to realise that the islands states housing communities were under-represented in the recorded history of Guernsey. By making portraits of individuals and families living in these communities, the prime aim of the project was to fill a gap in the island’s visual record of 21st Century life in Guernsey and give visibility to a segment of the island’s community that is often invisible and missrepresented. Guerns is the result of that residency.
