Edith Maybin: The Tenby Document

Edith Maybin: The Tenby Document at Edwynn Houk Gallery in New York. "...The Tenby Document is an intimate exploration of the interactions between mother and daughter, and the discovery of the 'self' through another. In 2005, Maybin began to photograph herself and her daughter in a house in the town of Tenby, Wales. Playfully reenacting stories within their enclosed setting, Maybin photographed mother and child separately and in the same position, often bridging the gap between them by digitally reassembling their bodies into a single figure. The structured Marks and Spencer undergarments featured in the photographs link the two models to the tradition of Maybin’s own mother, further blurring the lines that distinguish one generation from another."
