Filmmaker Insights: New Life

Artist Natalie Lennard travels to the redbrick streets of Harehills, Leeds – drawing inspiration from a Pakistani Muslim community. Call To Prayer recreates a birthing scene, depicting the recital of an Adhan prayer. The moving image is part of a wider, ongoing series entitled Birth Undisturbed.   

Speaking to ASFF, Lennard describes how early experiments with film broadened her practice as a fine art photographer.

Call To Prayer is on view as part of Artists’ Film 1: Identity, available On Demand from 5 November.
