Lala Meredith-Vula

SHIFTING BORDERS (Great Britain, 2006-2007)

The British photographer Lala Meredith-Vula was born in Bosnia. Her mother is of British descent, her father an Albanian Kosovar. In SHIFTING BORDERS she makes a personal journey through British, Albanian and Kosovan culture. At the same time she tells the story of Albanian immigrants and refugees all around the world. In a mixture of nostalgia, dreams and homesickness she investigates themes that are inseparably linked with her identity: the transition from war to peace, from tradition to modernity and from communism to capitalism. Meredith-Vula photographed herself and a number of models in the landscape in traditional Albanian costumes. The one moment there is a sense of a timeless whole, the next of contradictions and disjunction – but yesterday and today always remain visibly interwoven.
