Photography by Sara Hannant inspired by stories about the moon collected in Woolwich, Greenwich and Charlton as part of the Moon Festival.

About

What does the moon mean to you?  How does it make you feel?  What memories do you associate with the moon?  In the spring of 2019, Moon Festival went out on the streets, in squares, museums, corner shops, and shopping centres all around the Royal Borough of Greenwich to ask people about their relationship with the moon.  Artist Sara Hannant was commissioned by the festival to make a series of photographs inspired by these stories.  Lunation continues her exploration of the role of myth, magic and folklore in modern identities. Initially, she photographed the moon during various phases using a lens of high magnification. On to these images, she placed small objects which represent aspects of the moon as described in the stories. As above so below, the visual correspondences open the narratives to further interpretations and associations.
