Clare Steele is a photographer born in Australia. Her work is concerned with how place affects the emotional and physical connections to what we hold dear. Those innate feelings to adapt and survive while creating space and meaning for ourselves within our surroundings.
Descendants is inspired by the connections between Spain and Ireland, through the tales of Milesians, the sons of Míl Espáine, and migration across the water. There is an everlasting quest to find the familiar within the foreign, to connect with our surroundings through what we recognise and can relate to, rather then the unknown. This series attempts to understand the soul’s yearning to see, feel and touch the world around us.
