Fessler Exhibition & Screening in London
A film by Ann Fessler (Professor, Photography), Along the Pale Blue River, is currently on exhibition through January 5, 2014 at the The Foundling Museum in London. The exhibition is a part of “Home Truths: Photography & Motherhood,” a two-venue exhibition held jointly with The Photographers’ Gallery, London. Fessler traveled to London in connection with the exhibition to screen her recent film A Girl Like Her.
A book of the “Home Truths” exhibition, edited by curator Susan Bright, with work by Fessler, Elinor Carucci, Janine Antoni, Tierney Gearon, Leigh Ledare and others and essays by Bright, Simon Watney, Mark Johnstone, is available at Amazon.
Fessler’s films were also featured in a cover article about the exhibition written by Critic Lucy Davies in the British Journal of Photography (October 2013) and featured in a German blog Hatje Cantz Fotoblog.
In November, A Girl Like Her was screened at the “AFIN International Conference on Childhood and Families” in Pontevedra, Spain, and at Real Art Ways Cinema in Hartford, where Fessler conducted a Q&A following the screening. She was interviewed on WDRC The Talk of Connecticut’s Mary Jones Radio Show and WGCH Morning News Center with Tony Savino in connection with the Connecticut screening.
Recently, Critic Dan Schindel wrote a piece about A Girl Like Her on “Nonfics: Real Stories, Real Insight” titled “The Doc Option: Before ‘Philomena’ Watch ‘A Girl Like Her‘.”
