Family Pictures

Anna Gaskell... Untitled #26 (Override) (1997. C-print, laminated and mounted on Sintra,, 19 3/8 x 23 5/8 inches. Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum). From the exhibition Family Pictures, February 9 - April 16, 2007 at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, NY. "...Featuring works drawn from the Guggenheim museum's permanent collection, Family Pictures explores the representation of families and children in contemporary photography and video. Since its inception in the mid-19th century, photography has always been used to represent the bonds of family, whether through portraiture or documents of important milestones like weddings. In these images, fleeting moments of childhood are captured and preserved, and the family unit is fixed for posterity."
