Portrait of an Invisible Man
MetadataShow full item record
'Family' is a poetic exploration of the universal theme of family, a subject which has had a long connection with photography since the medium began in the nineteenth century. Curated by Sophie Spencer-Wood, the book is a collection of 175 photographs taken by photographers, famous and lesser known, of their families. It is an intimate study of the relationships - tender and awkward, knowing and innocent - that take place between adults and children in the family unit. My contribution to this book was a series entitled, 'Portrait Of An Invisible Man'. A collection of intimate and personal photographs that looked at my troubled relationship with my father. Featured artists include, beside myself, Robert Adams, Nobuyoshi Araki, David Bailey, Tina Barney, Richard Billingham, Harry Callahan, Julia Margaret Cameron, Raymond Depardon, Lee Friedlander, Nan Goldin, Emmet Gowin, Robin Grierson, Chris Killip, Dorothea Lange, Jacques-Henri Lartigue, Marketa Luskacova, Sally Mann, Roger Mayne, Ralph Eugene Meatyard, Nicholas Nixon, Sophie Ristelhueber, Edward Steichen, Alfred Stieglitz, Paul Strand, Larry Sultan, Juergen Teller, Larry Towell and Edward Weston.
