These are stories of women searching for identity and place and purpose in an international world of professors and bricklayers, mafiosi and hockey stars. The stories of these women are contained in those moments when different cultures and different values intersect, when dislocation and fragmentation lead to awareness. Edwards takes her images from the spheres of art and science highlighting unexpected connections and, with her graceful, spare style, brings clarity, understanding and humour to basic questions of responsibility, desire and loss.
