Publisher's Description
With these pictures, Leonie Purchas (Hampton) presents a new and innovative photographic approach to the human condition. The photographer chose to take an introspective look at herself through the members of her family. The resulting photos form a highly personal and emotional record of life in the Purchas (Hampton) household, in which both the photographer and the other members of the family show their vulnerability. By exposing this vulnerability, Purchas (Hampton) breaks through the distance that often separates photographer and subject. The camera shields and at the same time opens up a world that is entirely familiar, yet nevertheless reveals itself anew.
