Long Lane Long Nails

Explore the neighbourhood of Borough through the eyes of Jagoda, a local resident with a taste for awesome nails. Using double exposure photography, Jagoda layers the backdrop of her neighbourhood over nail-based self-portraits and discusses her family and Romany Traveller heritage. The work aims to show another perspective of Bankside and the surroundings, through personal stories and vibrant photography, while challenging existing stereotypes about Roma women and girls.

The video from this project, produced by photographer & educator Grace Gelder mixes collaborative portraits of Jagoda and her family members with text, image and audio. The video will launch at Stance Podcast's takeover at Tate Exchange, Tate Modern on 23/2/18. Click here for more info
