DDA TRIANGLE III: Fatma-Smileyhuseyin


The Brookmill, 65 Cranbrook Road, SE8 4EJ

Deptford Does Art presents three individual shows over three venues across Deptford under an umbrella name TRIANGLE III. Artists Jennifer Anne Brown’s art installation ‘People are Trees, Trees are people’; Andy Denial’s city scape exhibition ‘Nocturnal’ and Fatma-Smileyhusayin’s ‘Water is Life’ exhibition exploring the relationship of water and it’s effects. All three shows bring a unique perspective into the world of photography and its use to capture the world around us.

Water is life, it is essential to our existence. Fatma-Smileyhusayin captured moments from various travels both close to home and further a field, where water and its effects are her main focus.

Within the collection, you will find photos of coastal towns during calm and blustery days. Locals rely on fresh produce from the sea which is caught and sold on a daily basis. The sea generates an income for locals via tourism, which is essential for small, sleepy seaside towns which the masses are drawn to for a glimpse of the sea during the summer months. The sea provides them life.Some of the images show how delicate water droplets look while balancing upon flower petals. Fatma chooses close-ups of flowers to “give them the importance that they deserve; their surroundings are not as important as the water droplets upon the petals, which are the only priority”. When capturing these flowers, it provoked feelings of just how precious and fragile these flowers can be during their short lifespan, and how our water supply is so vital to creatures both great and small.
