In Order To Bloom

Laura Foster is a fine art photographer, currently based in Bristol, and her contemporary practice specialises in social documentary narratives, portraiture, experimental photographic processes and printmaking.

In Order To Bloom is a body of work telling the story of the complexity and strength of motherhood, coinciding with the ongoing battle against the disease of addiction. Told through visual translation of conversations between two young women, who have witnessed their mothers struggle with alcohol dependence throughout their lives.

Focussing on the themes of mother-daughter relationships and healing, the work portrays the raw and truthful story of the disease while aiming to fight harmful stereotypes of addicts, and to start the vital, yet so often avoided, conversations around the subject.
