FLORA MCCALLICA 

Printworks, photobooks and editions 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) deaccessioned 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),
msdm studio as part of  Stockwell Studios.
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.
