Leigh Ledare is included in The Photographers’ Gallery forthcoming exhibition Home Truths: Photography, Motherhood and Identity, curated by Susan Bright. The exhibition will explore representations of motherhood through the works of eight contemporary artists and aim to challenge long-held stereotypes and sentimental views of motherhood by addressing issues such as gender roles, domesticity, the body and the identity of individuals within the family unit. The work of the eight artists—Janine Antoni, Elina Brotherus, Elinor Carucci, Ana Casas Broda, Fred Hüning, Leigh Ledare, Katie Murray, Hanna Putz—tends to be autobiographical in focus and sits within the documentary genre. Large in both scale and scope, many of the projects span over several years with some still ongoing.
