A Mother’s Look
Photographer Talia Chetrit’s book “Joke” is a clever and humorous reflection on the cycle of life.
How do we expect a mother to look, photograph and think like? Arriving at the time in her life when she had a kid, Talia Chetrit reflected on the topics of life, time, sensuality and death mixing archival images from her own past, self-portraits and photographs of people close to her, sometimes complicit, others unwitting.
Her careful study of the power dynamic created by the camera mixes with a desire to play, deconstruct stereotypes, fluidify gender and desecrate pregnancy, celebrating all phases of life.
The book “Joke” by Talia Chetrit is published by MACK and available at the price of £35.00 (40 Euro).
