Joy Gregory, Artists in the archives of the lost and forgotten

Artists in the archives of the lost and forgotten When Derek Bishton and his wife Merrise bought a small beach house retreat in Reading, just outside Montego Bay, they discovered among the things left in the property a storeroom filled with dressmaking materials. They belonged to Trevor Owen, the former owner of the house, who had passed away a few years previously. My interest in forgotten or marginalised historical figures such as Matron Bell and Mary Seacole led to an invitation by Derek to create an event which would cast new light on the life of Trevor Owen.

Joy Gregory, Cinderella Tours Europe  Cinderella Tours Europe is a series of photographs which grew out of the numerous interviews Joy conducted during a four month research trip around the Caribbean. From Panama to Jamaica, from Haiti to Surinam, for many Europe was the place of unattainable dreams regarded in the same way as others may imagine Ancient Greece or the Roman Empire.
