A documentary and editorial photographer whose work draws inspiration from everyday life, Sofia Coombs uses image making to gain a greater understanding of the unfamiliar and the observed behaviour of others. In this long-term project, she documents her intimate yet strained relationship to her mother, with whom she is naturally close, despite past issues causing an extended estrangement. The project is an observation of her mother's unusual way of living, in an attempt to comprehend why she is this way and perhaps uncover some of the reasons that led them to drift apart. A serious and complex subject, approached with an innate sensitivity and the well considered, thoughtfulness of a person studying a loved one.
