Tierney Gearon : the mother project by Peter Sutherland( Visual )

6 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Celebrated photographer Tierney Gearon's work has been labeled manipulative, disturbing and even perverse ... Filmmakers Peter Sutherland (Pedal) and Jack Youngelson (Producer, Ghosts of Abu Ghraib) follow this exceptional artist over the course of three years as she assembles her most daring and emotionally complex body of work to date: a series on her manic-depressive schizophrenic mother, who resides in Grey Gardens squalor in the frozen farm country of upstate New York. The mixture of art and family can almost be too close for comfort, but like Gearon's photographs there is a subversive beauty that emerges from the incongruity between ordinary moments and madness ... a moving and intricate portrait of an artist, her inspirations and unconventional family relationships"--Container
