These images are part of a larger fine art series which Maybin has made of herself and her daughter combined as one. This particular series is photographed at night while Maybin’s daughter is asleep; these photographs of her daughter’s head and her own body are combined to make a chimera of persons. This discussion surrounds the topic of identity as a woman, mother and daughter.
Maybin’s images were inspired by artists Caravaggio, Vermeer, authors Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s “The Yellow Wallpaper”, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and Madonna videos.
A continuation of this series is expected summer 2010. To see further images in this series visit edithmaybin.com
