"Our Shadows seeks to explore the darker side of humanity. These ‘shadows’ permeate our lived experiences and contribute to worldwide instability, conflict and suffering. Conscious or subconscious prejudices are paradoxically an ever continuous source and response to this

trauma, acting as both a causative agent or an after effect. Though disasters, pain and suffering are an ever present part of the human condition, there remains an inherent shock felt when atrocities or pain are realised. Is this ignorance? Maybe forgetfulness? Or a repression of the

negative in favour of positive stories? Whatever our collective response to trauma and tragedy, a dark side of humanity is an ever constant fact of life that must be recognised."
