I took this picture of Alexander in August and by November it’s on a wall at the Jerwood. The picture is evidence of a private moment originally only to be shared with family and close friends via Facebook. Without doubt the right picture for this exhibition. Bringing the private into the public has been interesting and ultimately a rewarding experience. The show is on until 8 December 2013.

The Photocopy Club is taking part in the Jerwood Encounters Family Politics exhibition at the Jerwood Space next month. The show will be curated by Photoworks.

“As a subject, the family is both private and public: the site of intimate inter-personal relations and a social construct subject to public and political pressures. This relationship is mirrored in examples of family photography. The majority of family pictures serve essentially private functions, accruing meaning through their relationship to the memories, experiences and histories of individuals. However, the family is also the subject of public photographic representation and contestation. This involves a wide variety of practices including representations in the mass media, art, advertising and pictures circulating on social networking sites.”

Send your alternative family pictures to The Photocopy Club by Thursday 31 October 2013. Check out the submission guidelines and FAQ’s.

The picture below is one of mine for the show.
