Artist Jemima Brown recently published Peace Camp, a new book showcasing her unique and fascinating figurines, and to mark the 40th Anniversary of the Women’s Peace Camp at Greenham Common.
Her mixed media sculptures have extraordinary life-like features and expressions. They sit atop vintage Thermos flasks and Campingaz lamps, dressed in individually crafted hand knits and protest t-shirts emblazoned with tiny CND badges.
The book also features a number of Greenham Women, and I was delighted to be included with this image from my archive :
Last year I documented the Greenham Women anniversary march – 110 miles from Cardiff to Greenham Common. This is me at the end of day #8. I think there are definitely some similarities with Jemima Brown’s sleeping figurines!

Unfortunately our right to peaceful protest is still under threat as our Government tries to force through another bill, this despite the fact that the public and the House of Lords rejected their last attempts. To stop the bill, please take a look at the Greenpeace petition here.
