Deborah Parkin is a photographer based in rural Northumberland, UK. She spent many years in Academia – researching for a Ph.D in Women’s War Writing & teaching as well as gaining an MA in Holocaust Studies. Deborah has always been fascinated with childhood, whether it is recording her own memories of childhood, photographing her own children or other children. In her series Stillness in Time she wanted to photograph children using the wet plate collodion process – a process that requires stillness, the antithesis to the frantic, sometimes pressurized world these children live in. She wanted to record moments of stillness and disengagement from their immediate world. Her work has been published by Galerie Vevais & a softcover edition is to be released this Autumn. She has exhibited widely, including Japan, Europe & the U.S and her work is held in collections around the world.
