Becoming (M)other


Stewart Home
Chris Dorley Brown
Stewart Home is an artist, filmmaker, writer and activist. To create the series Becoming (M)other, a collaborative work with Chris Dorley-Brown, Home imitated poses thrown by his mother, Julia Callan-Thompson, during a modelling shoot in the 1960s. Photographs of the artist in these poses were integrated with the original images to create a series of joint portraits.
