Photographer #157: Tierney Gearon

Monday, November 8, 2010
Tierney Gearon, 1963, USA, made photographic series involving her mother and her children. Her photographs have been called "manipulative, disturbingly ambigious and perverse." When her series I am a Camera, about her two children, was exhibited at the Saatchi Gallery, the London Police demanded to take them down. The images by Tierney are personal, innocent and pure. In her latest project Explosure she stays close to home, taking pictures of her family life and on family trips, but this times she double-exposes her negatives. The following images come from the series Explosure, The Mother Project and I am a Camera.
