9780140263626: Mother

In the spirit of William Wegman and Cindy Sherman, Mother offers a very funny, wickedly satiric collection of portraits of that most sacred institution: Mom. Photographing her own mother using 1950s-inspired props, Olausen presents tongue-in-cheek images of "Mother as Coffee Table, "Mother as Door Mat", and "Mother in Camouflage". 60 color photos.

Review:

If Diane Arbus and her mother had shared a similarly warped vision and sense of humor, they might have turned out Mother, a lush, splashy, totally twisted photo album. Photographer Judy Olausen and her 74-year-old mother Vivian--a model with tightly permed blond hair, soft, wrinkled grandmotherly skin, and an extraordinarily expressive face--skewer the clichés of 1950s motherhood and martyrdom. In one shot, Vivian appears as a slightly deranged Betty Crocker, frosting a heart-shaped cake with Valium icing. In another, she's in chains hunched over an ironing board. As the archetypal "Mother Under Pressure," she sports cat glasses, white gloves, and a prim purse while dragging a huge bolder upstairs on her back. In "Shocked by Spock," reading that venerable pediatric bible causes alarm and a near-faint. The collection delivers a wallop of edgy humor and social commentary about women being silenced or squelched in their daily lives and dreams.

About the Author:
