Faith. – a much broader concept than the small word might suggest. For the individual for instance, it can signify one’s belief system, inherited or otherwise.
However we choose to think about faith, in today’s globalised world, the options that any individual meets are many. The primary questions are: how do you keep up with the pace of the rapid changes that may be presented by the world around us? And what are the consequences if we don’t? Taking the underlying themes of tradition, family, religion and politics, Faith is an exhibition comprised of a unique photographic archive taken over the past 27 years by the English-Maltese photographer Amelia Troubridge. Shot through analogue photography and combining reportage with portraiture, the work represents a timeline of significant socio-political moments in the history of the Maltese Islands from 1993 to the present.
