Tessie’ is a project inspired by the personal stories of a woman who is 102 years old. Portrait by portrait, one is drawn into a biographical collage that spans more than a century. It is a photographic narrative accompanied by textual fragments. It all unfolds from close ups of jewellery that have been passed down within the family. Throughout the project stories written by Glen Calleja in Maltese and translated to English by Albert Gatt, run parallel to the visuals.
