Home Truths: Photography, Motherhood and Loss


Four contemporary photographers explore the theme of loss in the relationship between mother and child. Set within the emotionally resonant context of the Foundling Museum, Home Truths explores issues that are complex and familiar, haunting and thought-provoking. 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. The companion show Home Truths: Photography, Motherhood and Identity is on display at The Photographers' Gallery from 11 October to 5 January 2014. Home Truths is supported by the Home Truths Supporters' Circle, and the Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation.
