Helen Stead

This practioner uses photos from her past and layers them over the top of places relevant in her present, such as her home town of salford. i really like the effect that the transparency of the layers gives as they have almost a ghostly quality, showing that they are clearly from the past, giving the feeling that time has passed as the photos look weathered and textured from the background layers. This work is very relevant with my place research as Stead has looked at the way that people link with places and the connections between past and present and the memories from these places.
I have also included other images of this artist, such as skecthbook pages.
