Chrysalis, unravelling anorexia
The opening of Emma Kate Codringron's photo essay on anorexia. Remarkable work from a talented and driven person. The work is printed by us on German Etching, Emma Kate's hanging method is amazing; tiny pegs on the top holding onto vintage string to 3m hooks. To keep the prints flat we mounted on to gatorfoam but allowed a 30mm overhang of the German etching. Really cool.
Emma Kate's story is harrowing and compelling and ultimately positive as she is a survivour who has grown through the experience.
I came away with the understanding that a condition such as anorexia is never cured, it is managed, it is held at bay with courage and support.
Everyone should see this show. Paul Atkins.
