Bermudian portrait and documentary photographer Meredith Andrews lives and works on the island, where most of her work revolves around the everyday people she meets, the cultural and historical context of her island home and Bermuda’s delicate natural environment. Her portrait work has been exhibited widely, including the Bermuda National Gallery, London’s National Portrait Gallery, the Arles Photo Festival, the International Center for Photography and The Photographer’s Gallery in London.
She says: “1915 is a series of portraits of 107-year-old Myrtle Edness, with whom I had the pleasure of spending a morning back in September last year. These images aim to capture the beauty and wisdom of a Bermudian whose long life has shown her many things. How the island has changed in many ways since she was born, but also how there is still so much to be done. These images hopefully give the viewer a chance to see that, along with the quiet wisdom in her eyes.”
