Fiona Yaron-Field is an artist and psychotherapist. Author of ‘Up Close,a Mother’s View’ (Bunker Hill Publishing 2008). She is a founding member of Shifting Perspectives – International Touring Exhibition challenging existing images of Down’s syndrome. Fiona is one of the founders and co-editors of ‘Uncertain States’ which holds talks, seminars, exhibitions and publishes a contemporary photography broadsheet. Fiona has participated in symposiums, publications and international exhibitions.
Fiona’s work focuses on the intimate and the ordinary. At the heart of the work is an exploration of relationship, both the relationship to ourselves and to the ‘other’. And a belief that through deeply personal material we can transcend our own story to comment and reflect on wider social and cultural issues. Fiona’s psychotherapy background has informed and shaped much of her photographic practice.
