Inside

Helen Cammock

MA work

Thinking about who represents whom, and for whom, is key to my practice. I am interested in stories that contribute to a broader understanding of the fabric of contemporary society. This includes legacies that have brought us to this point in national and global frameworks of existence. I look to explore the relationship between the individual and collective lived experience, in relation to the structural frameworks that are both political and social, through the still and moving image. My personal experience and my understanding of contemporary and historical contexts inform the fragmented narratives that contribute to the stories I tell.
