Project Description
The Jersey Development Company (JDC) commissioned photography to explore, record and archive a former 19th Century Ladies College in Jersey on The Channel Islands. The photo story produced, considers the social importance of the building as a space rich in layered narratives and personal memory – a place created out of a strong desire to educate, inspire and support a culture of strong and confident women in an era of intense gender inequality.
The photographs served as an evocative and personal reminder to many who passed through its spaces noting the success and subsequent outgrowth of this educational institution, celebrating a new residential chapter for this site – College Gardens.
The work resulted in a public exhibition at CCASM gallery, a booklet and short film about the project.
