Astrid Edwards & Anita Corbin - Visible Girls

Squire's Astrid Edwards has teamed up with Anita Corbin to revisit the ever successful Visible Girls Series. 

In the 1980s Anita Corbin took 28 pictures of young girls in pairs - female punks, mods, Rastas, skins, rockabillies and young lesbians shot in their London hangouts as friends, sisters and lovers. 36 years on, Corbin found those girls again, re-photographing them to discover the story of those rebellious girls.

A celebration of female identity, style and music the 3-year touring exhibition will be accompanied by a set of documentary films directed by Astrid, following the stories of each featured Visible Girl, and their life during and after their photograph was taken.

Buzzfeed have featured an article on the campaign, quoting:

"Corbin is now back in touch with 70% of the original women photographed and interviewed 36% of the original subjects for a new exhibition new portraits and the original pictures, which opens on Thursday at the Artlink gallery in Hull as part of the 2017 City of Culture programme, before touring the country. Corbin has launched a crowdfunding campaign to bring the exhibition to more towns and cities in Britain. Corbin plans to photograph some of the remaining women who are yet to be revisited by the end of 2018.

"It was a bit of a dream that I had," Corbin tells BuzzFeed News. "I did try to do it in 1991 but I couldn’t find any of them. All the numbers had changed or they’d moved away, so I let it go dormant for about 25 years. And it wasn’t until your piece came out that I thought, This is a possibility now.

"And in the last three years even more connections have happened because of technology. I think BuzzFeed was the catalyst and then I subsequently had the show last year and lots of press through that. Social media and media coverage has allowed me to find them, or them to find me."

The Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign is now live for the project, and can be found at:

Rodney Rascona - Images from the field, Hathi, 2015

Squire's Rodney Rascona reflects on the images, made by himself during his time in Hathi, after their tragic disaster.

   Survivor-Evelyn's Girl

Survivor-Evelyn's Girl

This young girl is one of Evelyn's children photographed over a three week period while on assignment for Suisse based MEDAIR and The Paradigm Project - shortly after the tremors from the 2015 Haitian earthquake calmed down. Like many who escaped the initial impact of such a violent tragedy, Evelyn and her daughter did the best they could. Evelyn held a piece of wood in her hand to protect them as they slept, too dangerous to stay in her damaged home and hearing rumors of a different kind of danger for women and girls if she went to the relief camps living in tents. So they stayed together on a dirty sheet until it was their turn to receive assistance. 

But beyond the initial impact the Haitian earthquake like all tragedies, keeps visiting the survivors in their sleep, in their dreams, hearing voices and replaying images in their head, while guilt becomes a constant companion for never having had a chance to say good bye or asking themselves - why did I survive. 

The United Nations stated that the loss to those who survived the 2015 Haitian earthquake was enormous with over 1.5 million children under the age of 18 effected by the tragedy - much of it personally experienced. They lost complete families, lost generations of mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, with laughter and dreams exchanged for nightmares, screams and fear. The sights and sounds of such enormous human loss, the emotions felt in losing loved ones, will be forever trapped inside young minds with memories and experiences more dark than not. A survivor yes thankfully - yet forever scarred.
