Theo Wenner

Photographed throughout 2018, Theo Wenner documented his seventy-year-old mother in her house in Amagansett, New York, where she has finally found solace following the most difficult years of her life.

In this intimate study, Wenner paints an emotional portrait of his mother, her surroundings, her dogs, and the friends and family that come and go, as the season’s change and the house shifts from summer to winter.

“I think it’s really important to photograph what you know, otherwise the work will feel insincere…The more time I’ve spent with my mother over the years, the more complex of a character she’s become for me. She really is one of the most mysterious, surprising people I know.”
