Christine Webster’s photography is unnerving and unsettlingly beautiful, illuminating subjects that are often left in the dark; referencing a long history of female representation in the Western art canon. Therapies examines the societal/historical constructs in which the (female) body exists and is viewed; ideas of powerlessness, mental and physical anguish, and desolate beauty, are all threaded through this series of images.
