Marguerite Moon

Echoes: a photographic exploration of reproduction.

Moon’s work explores the notion that life consists of a series of moments; moments that are layered and textured. Working within the field of photography, her work resists the notion of a singular defining moment within portraiture. The elements of time and space play a significant role in complicating clearly defined singular intentions and depictions. As an individual never comfortable within any clearly defined, prescribed or expected social, cultural or political structure, unsettling an expected norm in portraiture is inevitable. This body of work is informed by Moon’s own experience as a mother and artist. It is a photographic exploration of (largely unchartered) feminist mothering, looking at the continuous cycle of projection and reflection within her relationship with her two daughters.
