It’s rare to see visual invocations of one of the oldest painting traditions in Western art: a mother’s love. In shamanic photographic conjurings, Laurel Nakadate always among the strongest artists working with a camera portrays her late mother, who died before she could meet her new grandson, holding this baby boy. In scores of pictures we see daughter to mother, mother to grandson, all in this happy imagined melancholy kingdom.
