today is my new favourite day celebrates the purity and freshness of youth. Jennifer Drabbe, who spent a large part of her childhood at boarding school, watches with wonder and amazement how her daughters move about in the safety of a family home. Fascinated and inspired by this gentle world unfolding before her eyes Jennifer aimed her camera at them for over ten years. She captures unexpected moments and details. The scenes we witness are sometimes spontaneous, sometimes staged. The daughters used as actors. We are drawn into the images through the strong use of form and abstraction.
Jennifer Drabbe has researched our personal, often unconscious, behaviour in a humorous way for quite some time. Previously on stage as a theater director, now as a photographer. today is my new favourite day is a surprising, well designed and tactile book in which intimate daily moments are conveyed in strong, sometimes theatrical, images.
