I have decided to use a different name now. My maiden name used to be Peršin,
When I got married I changed it to Reid, but to my dismay have found that I have given up an unusual name to find I share my name with countless others, some of whom are not only artists but also photographers. This means people searching for me are thinking I am someone else. I was prompted to reintroduce my maiden name alongside my married name, after starting a new project about my father and the death pits in Slovenia. This will be a long project and it will be useful to me to have my Slovenian surname back, to make it easier to approach people in Slovenia. Plus, it will now be harder to be mistaken for someone else!
