This new collector's edition of Jessica Todd Harper's (born 1975) The Home Stage includes a 14 x 11-inch numbered print, signed by the photographer, titled "Self Portrait with Nicholas, Becky and Marshall" (2009). Though Harper uses a camera rather than a paintbrush, the viewer quickly senses in her images the familiar canvases of Sargent, Whistler and Vermeer. Harper's naturalistic images pause or recreate real life for the camera; the play between the often-formal environment and her subjects--intimately portrayed family members--creates images that seem at once intimate and artificial. This collection is thus aptly called The Home Stage, a double entendre that references the home-bound lifestyle of families with small children as well as the idea that home is the stage on which children first learn to live. With her elegant compositions, unique color palette and skillful handling of light, Harper transforms every room and yard into a stage set.
