Stories of Home’ is a visual art book of 27x27cm, with 56 film photographs displayed across 132 pages, which was published in March 2022. The hardback book is offset printed, thread bound and divided in sections by translucent leaves.
The book is available for €50 with all proceeds being donated to the Malta Community Chest Fund Foundation.
Janette Marsh was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in late 2020. ‘Stories of Home’ is a curated project led by Andrew Borg Wirth and Marija Grech that follows Janette’s journey since diagnosis.
The project has developed as a photo essay that investigates the vulnerability of the subject, changing values of familiarity and the idea of ‘home’. It operates as a visual, experimental and collaborative art statement that condenses the time spent in conversation between Andrew, Marija and Janette.
It is a personal, political and confessional work that Janette hopes to use in order to generate more conversation around ovarian cancer.
