What would our forebears make of Jersey life today?

In this new series of limited edition prints, Russell Layton places our modern selves within scenes captured by historic Jersey photographs sourced from the archives of Jersey Heritage and the Société Jersiaise.

Our Victorian ancestors, once the anonymous subjects of these photographs, now become the observers of our modern world and encourage us to see ourselves – as if through a looking glass – from a new perspective.

Russell has had four solo exhibitions, at the Jersey Arts Centre and in Guernsey. His work is held in private collections in London, New York, Sydney and Grouville.
