‘Exquisite…#MakeItHappen’

Older female relatives celebrated in new photowork for International Women’s Day.

The photo collective ‘Not Finished Article’ has chosen to celebrate International Women’s Day by creating a new work especially for the Porty Light Box. Not Finished Article’s work ‘Exquisite…#MakeItHappen’ is a homage to significant older female members in the family.

Comprising of three full-length portraits of personal significance to three members of the collective, and linked together by a purple figure of ‘8’ to mark the date, NFA hope the Portobello community will do their own remembering, celebrating of Grandmothers and Great Aunties on International Women’s day.
