“McLaughlin’s work in this series focuses in on how the history of photography has been regarded as a predominately white male timeline. Throughout this history, a record of marginalized artists have been overwritten or eliminated. Women in particular were disregarded, while mainstream photographers such as Ansel Adams, Edward and Brett Weston, soared to recognition. McLaughlin’s work looks to recuperate and pay homage to the icons of the medium’s past, but with a female persona, rewriting these tropes in history.”
