Through thirty years of photographing her family, Ellis Ritter’s The Model Family is an exploration of intergenerational love, loss, trauma and joy, in a project mining the ambiguities of memory while confronting head-on the ambiguity of photography. In her unflinching-detailed inquiry of family dynamics , the artist explores how the images of those closest to you are also often the most slippery, sliding just out of reach.
