'Turkana', 2024 (Work in Progress)

Turkana County, Northern Kenya

Sound & Video

In February 2024 I headed to Kenya for the first phase of an ongoing project documenting the wide range of livelihood practices among the Turkana in collaboration with social anthropologist and photographer Sam Derbyshire. Our work is focused on challenging dominant narratives of pastoralism by highlighting it's unique capacity for being productive by means of uncertainty. 

 

Sam's current field work is being funded through the British Museum's endangered material knowledge programme. Learn more about the programme here: https://www.emkp.org/lake-turkana-in-the-making-documenting-the-mobile-material-knowledge-of-drylands-pastoralism-in-northern-kenya/

‘Man to Boy’ is a short audio documentary that explores one man’s relationship with a boy that he knows very well - his younger self.

Through a process of ‘self-parenting’ that is inspired by men’s work, Jacob Kelly considers what stories he carries about himself from childhood and how these play out in both adulthood and fatherhood.

London Symphony Orchestra & Good Neighbours Scheme

Jean Stokes Community Centre

Produced by the LSO

 

In January 2023, Bemerton Good Neighbours Scheme launched a new community music project in partnership with London Symphony Orchestra (LSO). Over 6 weeks at Jean Stokes Community Centre, musicians from the LSO and elderly Islington residents collaborated to make music together.

Artist and audio maker Jack Miguel came in to record the music being made in the group and to speak to some of the staff and the residents on the programme about their experience. This audio doc/collage is the result of those conversations and recordings.
