Photographer Franklyn Rodgers pays homage to a figure sacred in his life: his mother, Loretta.

About

Over several years, Rodgers photographed Loretta and the circle of friends important to her. The large-scale portraits in Devotionrecognise the significance of these close-knit relationships: mother and son, and between friends. His visual care for such deeply personal subjects is evident in the exquisite and refined grandeur of these works, the result of a methodology built on intimacy and trust.

Rodgers’ photographs investigate what it means to look into the human face. He drew inspiration from work of French philosopher Emmanuel Levinas, who claimed that our individual obligations and morality are found in the recognition of the suffering and mortality of others. Identity becomes both a departure and return to the self.

This exhibition is an act of devotion to his mother and the intimate familial moments of love, care, tenderness and affection in these relationships. Loretta and the devoted network around her are a testament to the case for greater safekeeping and care across the human condition.

Join us at the opening event for our new exhibitions Franklyn Rodgers: Devotion - A Portrait of Loretta and Marcia Michael: I Am Now You - Mother and on Thurs 26 April, 6:30 - 8:30pm.
