FLORA MCCALLICA 2012-2020

A celebration of eight years of printworks, photobooks, editions and wearables sourced from the most iconic collection in the Found Photo Foundation.
Flora McCallica is a collage of orphan photos from a set dated 1958  found in Lisbon flea market and  a 1920s herbarium (Herbarium Britannicum) discarded by London Kew Gardens.  The title is an evocation of Mary Delany, inventor of botanical collage (Flora Delanica 1772-1782) and Annie McCall founder of the Maternity Hospital (1889-1970) transformed by Stockwell Studios and where msdm studio was based until 2013.

The collages have auto-ethnographic and archaeological references, and like pieces of evidence altered by the passage of time, the digital and hand-made photographs show stains and patterns that are unique to each work.
