The work of Tracey Moffatt
Photography to me seems to be a never ending journey of discovery. Just when you think you have your top few favourite photographers then another comes along and just blows you to pieces. Tracey Moffatt is one of them. Her images contain brief captions of family betrayal. Some have said that ‘Without the captions, Moffat’s photos are merely sad. With the captions, they are devastating’.
On reflection, the narratives contained within these images are things that maybe we can all relate to. Maybe they are a bit too close to home. It is possible in a strange kind of way that this is why so many people are drawn to them..
