The images are thoughtful, disturbing, and funny in turn; there is a great variety of work to explore’ – Royal Photographic Society Journal
A thorough deconstruction of what family photos habitually are’– Telegraph
A journey through the modern world … every picture tells a thousand words about the way we live’– Motherland
'Family Photography Now' presents 40 international image-makers who have turned their lens on the complex dynamics of the family, whether their own or other people’s.
Here you will find Swedish stay-at-home dads and Congolese first-time mothers, families with same-sex parents and families with identical twins, blended families and extended families, portraits made via Skype and portraits of imaginary families. Sophisticated art projects appear alongside highly personal images.
From Magnum member Trent Parke’s darkly amusing shots of life in suburban Australia and Denis Dailleux’s portraits of Egyptian bodybuilders and their mothers to Elina Brotherus’s devastating records of failed IVF and Nadia Sablin’s elegy to her elderly aunts in rural Russia, this book takes readers on powerful journeys that are by turns moving, funny, thought-provoking and inspiring, encouraging us to reflect on how we photograph our own families.
Complete with profiles revealing each photographer’s story and working methodology, and two essays analyzing the complications of family attachments and the ways in which these have been captured in photography of many genres and moods.
