Holly Marsden BA (Hons) Photography

Holly Marsden

‘Ella’ is a documentation of life with a disabled sibling and an exploration of fragility and strength. Marsden approaches this body of work with empathy and a close bond with her subject, questioning her own abilities through her sister's disabilities. Working with a subject that is so close to her in both relation and proximity gives Marsden the opportunity to capture and portray some of the more tender and gentle moments, in hopes that the viewer will question their preconceived notions about caring for someone with a disability. With this work Holly hopes that a larger audience will be introduced to a subject and theme they don’t often see represented from the perspective of a carer.
