SEEN NOT HEARD
Heather Evans Smith
Seen Not Heard takes its title from the Old English adage "To Be Seen and Not Heard", a term often thrown about in reference to the desired behavior of children. These images are silent, but they create a voluble visual narrative on the relationship between parent and child. They explore the cycles that are passed down through generations and the tension between keeping to what is known and forging a newer, and perhaps stronger, path. As strong as the close, forever bond between mother and daughter is, there also exists a distance inherent between two different individuals.
