‘Girls and their Mothers’ looks at the complex identify of multiracial individuals, a visually underrepresented group in Scotland. Instead of questioning their ancestry or scrutinizing their appearance, Kim chose to photograph girls and women of mixed heritage and their mothers with an intent on questioning social perception. The images display their relationships, linking these girls and their mothers together while at the same time respecting their disparity.
'Girls and their Mothers' was first produced in 2016 and exhibited at East Kilbride Arts Centre, and at several community venues across Glasgow and East Renfrewshire. This exhibition as part of Stirling Photography Festival is one of a series of regional partnerships which celebrate Street Level's 30th Anniversary.
