About the Author

Amelia Shepherd
Meliworms Brighton, UK

Photographer. Visual story-teller. Exploring narrative platforms. Mixing documentary photographs with text, interviews, sometimes sound.

My Blurb bookstore book 'Home is Where the Heart is' is from an ongoing project documenting the town and the lives of those that live in the coastal Sussex town Peacehaven. This forms part of the work Peacehaven in III Parts which was my recent Masters project on the MA in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography at London College of Communication, University of the Arts, London. For my project Peacehaven in III Parts I was awarded with a Distinction on this highly acclaimed MA course. Peacehaven in III parts has been exhibited nationally. There will be more books and versions of this work available later in 2012. See for more book and other photographic projects .

No reason for being too modest: I really like the way your book is an amazing patchwork-look-a-like work on the one hand. On the other hand there are very impressive precise and emphatic portraits. I came across your book by trying to have a look at the most promising PBN-entries. In my opinion there are only some really great works amongst all the entries.
