Portraits change the way we understand one another. Whether this is professional photos, selfies on Instagram or snapshots of our friends, the photos that we take of ourselves and each other speak volumes about who we are and who we want to be. Through portraits, we come face to face with someone else: they create a space in which we can challenge the assumptions that we often hold about people. This exhibition presents projects that give us a chance to empathise, to consider the experience of someone else’s life.
Opening Friday 10 May, Kinship at Open Eye Gallery navigates the dynamics of modern relationships. The exhibition presents projects from seven photographers, all women, addressing traditional ideas of how people might relate to others based on their gender, age, or position within a family. Together, the artists seek to open up new ways of thinking about how we express our sense of kin — as friends, family and partners. Kinship features the work of Pixy Liao, Lydia Goldblatt, Johanna Heldebro, Jenny Lewis, Momo Okabe, and Margaret Mitchell.
