The Crown is an art project by the artist Breda Mayock exploring how traveller women feel about their hair and what it means to them both as an individual and as a member of the traveller community. The project was originally presented online as www.crowncloseup.ie and evolved onto a video filmed by Mia Mullarkey.
Crown Beoir (women) and Crown Lackeen (girls) are both exhibited presently in The National Museum of rural Life, Turlough Hse, and in The Linenhall Art Gallery, Castlebar.
I was the Photographer on the project.
