Mother Daughter, Daughter Mother
In an ongoing exploration of personal and family relationships, I look closely at the experiences of being a mother and of being mothered. Maternal experience goes beyond the verbal and I use photography as a way of articulating this. Mother Daughter, Daughter Mother is an observation of the mother daughter dyad. The idealised image of Madonna and Child (male) is an active element of our visual language. I reflect on the intersubjective relationship between a mother and her child (female), granting both roles respect. By photographing the mother and daughter in their familial surroundings I give an insight into the people but make no statements about their relationship, it is an observation of an already relatable subject, family.
