Transference: Mom and Dad | Head On Photo Festival

Transference: Mom and Dad

Photographer's Name: 
Meghann Lyding

Transference: Mom and Dad is the result of repeatedly kissing my parents. The traces of lipstick, which recall the act, become marks of a relationship history that presents itself superficially and in excess. The kisses can be seen as gestures of affection or elicitation of a healing response as well as the redness of wounds. Regardless of the read, the gesture is revisited as it has been shared, transferred back and forth through the relationship.
