Honoring ‘in this space we breathe’ by Late Photographer, Khadija Saye 🖤.
All eyes are currently on the installation of late Gambian-British photographer Khadija Saye’s work titled “in this space we breathe”. Her moving series of photographs is part of a larger exhibition series called “Breath is Invisible” in Notting Hill in London—a direct response to the globally growing Black Lives Matters movement.
Khadija was just 24 years old when she exhibited her moving work at the Venice Biennale in 2017. A few short months later, the incredibly talented artist and activist tragically died in the Grenfall Tower fire of June 2017, just a few weeks before her 25th birthday.
Nine photographs from this series are now being exhibited—the remaining works were destroyed by the tragic fire. While we can’t all travel to Notting Hill to admire and honor Khadija and her work, we would still like to take the time to pay homage to this inspirational and moving artist and her work.
“The series was created from a personal need for spiritual grounding after experiencing trauma,” Saye wrote of the works in a catalogue before she died. “The search for what gives meaning to our lives and what we hold onto in times of despair and life changing challenges.”
