Starting with her pregnancy more than a decade ago and continuing on through the birth of her twins and the subsequent early years of their lives, Elinor Carucci has made a body of work that has pulled back the curtain on the joys and frustrations of motherhood. I reviewed an earlier incarnation of this project that was shown at Sasha Wolf Gallery in 2011 (here), and found it full of raw personal emotion, alternating between the harsh and the tender with the intensity of a high strung, overtired caregiver. At that time, the photographs felt very centered on Carucci herself, a constant and often indirect reflection of how she was feeling and how the actions of her growing children were seen through her eyes.
