Tamara is a landscape photographer based in Nottinghamshire.
Longing to Belong is an inquiry into the negotiation of belonging that originates in my experience of a dual heritage household, growing up as part of two different cultures and landscapes. The work was produced through repeated walks in Malta where my maternal family is from, and areas of the Peak District in England, near to where I grew up. The process of walking and photographing in the landscapes allowed a means to challenge the barriers of language and geographical distance. The work opened a space to engage with family and culture and anchor a place of belonging.
