Descriptive line

Photograph, 'Like Mother, Like Daughter: III' by Frances Kearney.

Labels and date

Frances Kearney's images seem at first like spontaneous snapshots yet they are meticulously staged. Clothes, expressions and posture are all contrived for the photograph. She re-works the arrangement of a scene until a sense of stillness is achieved. The result is a subtle portrayal of everyday experiences and observations in the private domain. The figures convey a monumental and meditative quality, caught at a moment of personal reflection, perhaps waiting for something to happen. Ultimately, Kearney's works are about how we cope with our awareness of the passing of time. [2008-2009]
