DAMMIT JANET I love you is a collaborative project by Artist Emma Wilson and Janet, formerly Jim from Bransholme in Hull.
Emma first met Janet on a night out in Hull in 2017 and the two cooked up a plan to document Janet’s daily life as she transitioned from a her previous life as a 71 year old former soldier, granddad and lorry driver to the fabulous, glittering star of the Hull T-Scene that we see today.
The pictures document everyday life with Janet, her home, her friends, nights out and lots of shopping. Two years later, the project is nearing completion and they exhibited some of the work in progress for Pride In Hull together with a selection of Janet’s personal effects. The publicity around the exhibition has led to some of Janet’s estranged family getting back in touch and there are high hopes for a full reconciliation.
