Martha, a new project by internationally regarded photographer Sian Davey will exhibited at Dodo Photo, Exeter's only gallery and project space dedicated to photography - marking the launch of it's re-opening and on-going programme starting in January.

‘Why don’t you photograph me anymore.’ This is what Martha said to me in response to my camera being focused so often on her sister Alice. It took me by surprise. I wasn’t aware that she would care, but clearly she did. The work began when Martha was 16 years of age, a time when a child is on that cusp of being and becoming a woman. It’s a particular period of time, when for a brief period you are both a young woman and child in the same body, before the child leaves and the young woman stands on her own to meet the world. It’s a complex and potentially confusing time. During this period of transition, there is a very short human space when a person can behave free of the weight of societal expectations and norms. Before long that window closes and we can easily forget how it felt to be ‘untethered’.
