Tierney Gearon @ SVA

From the SVA website:

The Camera Club of New York Presents: Tierney Gearon
Tuesday, January 22, 7pm
Best known for arresting images of her family, photographer Tierney Gearon came to prominence with a 2001 exhibition at London’s Saatchi Gallery, where nude portraits of her children set off a media controversy. From 2003 to 2005 she was shadowed by a documentary film crew for The Mother Project, a 2007 Sundance Channel documentary that charts the evolving, complex relationship between Tierney and her schizophrenic mother. The photographs that Gearon took on this journey became a critically acclaimed exhibition at the Yossi Milo Gallery. In a new book, Daddy Where Are You? (Steidel, 2007), Gearon revisits her relationship with her family through revealing tableaux and portraits of her mother.
