Over the past year I’ve been working with Léonie Hampton on her beautiful book ‘In the Shadow of Things’, a body of work that examines her own family and their attempts to help her mother, Bron, deal with the challenges caused by Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
The book was released in the UK in May this year and if you haven’t seen the project yet, you can view a selection of the images on Léonie’s website, www.leoniehampton.com, where you can also buy a signed copy.
‘In the Shadow of Things’ has recently been reviewed by Louise Clements for 1000 Words Photography Magazine. It’s a brilliant article, and it’s available here: http://www.1000wordsmag.com.
