Janet Turra

Janet, a photographer and ceramicist, honed her photography skills as a tool in her fine arts career. Often in her work, she used photography to capture stylised still life images and moments she had created as a production potter. Over 25 years, she developed a more specific language through photography that reveals who we are in moments, specifically moments tied to mothering.

Turra homeschools her children without technology and documents them in the same south coast East Cork landscape of her childhood. Her images capture their humanness as they move freely outdoors rather than inhibited inside. Her ongoing work documents their childhood through a time soon to be lost, both to adulthood and a digital world.
