Selina Ozanne
The Miraculous White Dust


This work is a revised narrative of the events depicted in the book ‘Silent Spring’ by Rachel Carson. It recounts the spring of 1961 in the village of Tumby, Lincolnshire where tens of thousands of birds were found dead due to the use of the now banned pesticide DDT, ironically labelled by Winston Churchill as ‘the miraculous white dust’.


Selina was born locally in Guernsey and lived on the island until moving to London where she completed her BA Photography at Kingston University. Having recently graduated she is now continuing with her practice, which currently revolves around the food industry and its relationship with environmental concerns. In addition to this Selina is also working on local documentary projects motivated by daily nuances amongst Guernsey and the Bailiwick.
