Jessica Todd Harper: The Home Stage
January 23 – March 28, 2015

The Home Stage continues Harper’s photographic investigation into her own life and extended family, as well as the families of friends and other acquaintances. In many of her images we see Harper with her three young children and husband in scenes that writer Alain de Botton describes as showing “ordinary life in the family, an especially poignant subject, because marriage and life with children are always buffeted and frustrated by inescapable difficulties.” Harper herself has said that the work grew out of an “overwhelming sense that when we became parents, Chris and I had entered into an alternate and strange world.”
