Face Of The Day


David Rosenberg admires the work of Gillian Laub. From a series documenting her own family:

Although she’s covered hard-hitting stories of life in the Middle East and segregated high-school proms in the South, Laub’s images are often reminiscent of family portraits, with their intimate and deeply personal style. …

“I am very interested in tradition and ritual, so naturally every family holiday and ritual I will be photographing,” Laub wrote. Recently Laub became a mother for the first time and said the experience feels as if everything has come full circle. “I have spent so many years photographing other people’s children, so to now photograph my daughter with my mother and grandmother is pretty amazing.”
