Mother, Mother

        Mother, Mother explores the performative nature of the photograph not only as a still image, but as a visual means to express traumatic experiences; to reconsider the relationship we hold with ourselves and the world through creation.


     As Susan Sontag states in her essay Regarding The Pain Of Others, “It is passivity that dulls feeling.”.​​ Through this imagery, Cosentino personifies the human struggle between the desire for dependence upon individual who can no longer give and the ultimate quest for autonomy; the act of subconsciously holding on and physically trying to break away.
