BOOB with LISA CREAGH: ARTIST & ENTREPRENEUR
Why is breastfeeding so problematic? Everyone, mothers and not, seems to have an opinion. Danusia is joined by artist and entrepreneur Lisa Creagh to discuss everything BOOB. Lisa is an artist, entrepreneur and creator of “Holding Time” which addresses ideas around motherhood, time and breastfeeding in particular.
Lisa Creagh lives and works in Brighton. She is well known in photographic circles as an artist after the commercial success of her work on infertility, aptly named ‘The Instant Garden’. Locally she is known as the founder of the Brighton Photo Fringe. But her many accomplishments incorporate less visible work in marketing for business and not for profit.
Her new work, ‘Holding Time’ is typically collaborative and accessible. She worked with a sociologist, a glassmaker and a composer to create a multi-platform piece that works as installation, photographic series and web channel. It has gathered a powerful response from not only the breastfeeding community but also the wider public who have flocked to her YouTube channel in their thousands to watch interviews with the mothers featured in the still images.
