Combining original photographic images, usually portraits that Claire Newman-Williams creates with old cameras and alternative processes, with found objects. She creates collages layered and arranged in antique wooden boxes. These Story Boxes are intended to be like inner landscapes, addressing the recurrent themes of the smothering of identity and our fear of being seen – truly seen by those around us.
