Home Truths: Photography, Motherhood and Loss
11 October 2013 – 05 January 2014
The Foundling Museum
Four contemporary photographers explore the theme of loss in the relationship between mother and child.
Curator Susan Bright has selected work by Ann Fessler (b. 1950, USA), Tierney Gearon (b. 1963, USA), Miyako Ishiuchi (b. 1947, Japan) and Annu Palakunnathu Matthew (b. 1964, Britain), who use photography in a variety of ways: by digitising vernacular photographs, drawing on documentary and experimental film practice or as a trace.
Set within the emotionally resonant context of the Foundling Museum, Home Truths explores issues that are complex and familiar, haunting and thought-provoking.
