The connections between the family and photography have been evident since the invention of the medium. A photograph has that sense of presence, that trace of the real, and photographs sometimes make appear what we never see in a real face, a genetic feature.

We all make portraits photographs of family members and this exhibition looks at work made by currently active ‘creative photographers' who look to their first- & second- degree relatives. However, rather than being the mirrors of the soul of the subjects, these portraits may reflect more the personality of the photographer.
