Now she is sewing the photographs together into wearable photo albums, the garment being a metaphor for the ways we identify ourselves. This is very pertinent in today's snapshot world of computers where in the land of facebook etc we send out images of ourselves to the world, images that we hope enable people to recognise us not only in a surface understanding but our spirit and character. Jane's work also works on the theme of legacy as these poor photos are lost, remnants of someones life but stitched together and bound to other peoples lives they speak to us of society and the essence of humanity.
