Curatorial Statement

Home Truths: Photography and Motherhood aims to challenge long-held stereotypes and sentimental views of motherhood by addressing issues such as gender roles, domesticity, the body and the identity of individuals within the family unit. Like photography itself, the expectations and demands of motherhood are in flux; both subject and medium grapple for new meanings. My hope is that the work featured in these exhibitions and book will open up debates about the continued representation and place of the mother figure, while raising questions about the identity and display of photography at this pivotal moment in which we find ourselves – at a crossroads between the singular photographic object and the sprawling nature of the networked image.
