Franklyn Rodgers: Devotion – A Portrait of Loretta

The opening of a new exhibition takes place later this month; Devotion – A Portrait of Loretta is the latest exhibition from photographer Franklyn Rodgers in which he pays homage to a figure sacred in his life: his mother, Loretta.

Created over several years, the collection of images features Loretta and the circle of friends important to her. The detailed portraits draw attention to the significance of the close-knit relationships between these individuals and investigate what it means to look into the human face.

Drawing inspiration from the work of French philosopher Emmanuel Levinas, who claimed that our individual obligations and morality are found in the recognition of the suffering and mortality of others, Rodgers collection of images shows this in an act of devotion to his mother and the intimate familial moments of love, care, tenderness and affection in these relationships displayed.

Metro is delighted to be supporting Rodgers who utilised our Bespoke Service for the production and mounting of the C type prints for the exhibition.
