In these new works, the bold and irreverent painting by Jemima Stehli’s five year old son August over the surface of large scale black and white photographs describes the proximity, complexity and unpredictability of this living relationship and of the act of making. Stehli collaborates to both disrupt and generate the image. Some of the photographs show Stehli pregnant, others are landscape close-ups made in the years before and since August’s birth.
Photographing the landscape was one thing I thought I could manage when I had a child, but that was impossible in fact. When I did try, August was fascinated. A child has to be with you all the time, which most people know, but to me I really wasn’t prepared for that.
