Photographer Franklyn Rodgers pays homage to a figure sacred in his life: his mother, Loretta.
Over several years, Rodgers photographed Loretta and the circle of friends important to her. The large-scale portraits in Devotion recognise the significance of these close-knit relationships: mother and son, and between friends. His visual care for such deeply personal subjects is evident in the exquisite and refined grandeur of these works, the result of a methodology built on intimacy and trust.
