Project Jeanne

Leave a comment

I’m currently working on a photography project that is totally different from my normal night and architectural images.  It is based on a kimono that originally belonged to my great grandmother, and was eventually given to me by my grandmother, Jeanne Johnstone Wilson.  The kimono is from China (circa 1910/20s – possibly earlier) and is made from raw silk and I’ve had it made into a dress, top and some lovely wall pictures.  But the fabric is so delicate and when my Grandmother passed away in 2012, I wanted to ensure that the fabric and its history was preserved.

Hence Project Jeanne! I am in the testing phases of the project but below are a couple of images to show what I am up to.

Please have a look around my lovely shop on Etsy where you can buy limited edition prints, camera accessories, notebooks and trays. Mapp of London came about through my love of photography – all the products are either my own photos or designed by me to fulfill my needs as a photographer. I hope you will agree with me that these are unique and lovingly crafted items.
