Homes Truths from a photographer's perspective

Foundling Museum Photographer Edward Lyon explores the latest exhibition Home Truths from a photographers point of view.

Part of our ever popular Foundling Sundays, which include a talk on a subject related to the Foundling Hospital, followed by a concert in the beautiful Picture Gallery.

This Sunday hear Ed Lyon giving a photographer’s perspective of the latest exhibition, Home Truths, followed by a programme of Hayden and Beethoven with The Skazki Piano Trio.

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.
