Pippa Healy

Pippa is a photographic artist who is widely known for her zines, which have been awarded with several prizes and are hold by important collections. Dealing with the difficult themes of grief, violence and loss, her subtle, pensive images easily take us on our own journeys to the moments we rather not remember to provide not grief but a surprising relief through the sharing of feelings which are mostly unspeakable. Here she presents her series Don't Come Looking for Me, dealing with memory and the return of the repressed.
