This photographer died in the Grenfell Tower disaster.

Using very old tintype, her work explores Ghanaian spirituality and a “deep rooted urge to find solace within a higher power”: Poignant after what happened.

Interesting isn’t it that unless she’d died in a disaster, many of us would never of heard of her nor seen her work?  History is littered with artists who only achieved fame posthumously.  Do they work to be famous and, if so, they would have ‘failed’ in their own lifetime?

For me this is another lesson that we must follow our own authentic path, producing work that inspires us.  If current or future generations enjoy it too then that is a welcome – but secondary – bonus.

Pick up a camera, paint brush or pencil and do your funky thing.  For you.
