Lydia Goldblatt : Fugue

Lydia Goldblatt

Lydia Goldblatt considers themes of origins, transience and emotional experience. Her quietly powerful and beautifully crafted prints creatively fuse the approaches of both documentary and constructed photography. Tenderly observed portraits and details of the human form are combined with enigmatic still lifes and abstract constructions suggestive of elemental forces. Her work for this commission entitled Fugue, made during and post lockdown, focuses on the family, private and close public spaces and intimacy as she looks at questions of mothering, community, love, loss and time. The work is made in the family home, the community of nearby streets and shot on film. The work shown is an extract from a larger body of work.
