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), where msdm studio was based,
as member 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.
