Stella Kalaw
Family Space


A visual representation of interconnected lives in different parts of the world, ‘Family Space’ bears a direct reference to her family, which also aims to elicit a sense of connectivity among her family members. Despite the sense of time, space and loneliness evoked, she also atttempts to bridge these ele- ments by capturing images that suggest familiarity, intimacy and connectedness.
