Corwin's Wings 2020
"Corwin's Wings" is a piece from my ongoing conceptual work "Mother Series" that began in 2015 with the birth of my first child.
I became overwhelmed at the beauty and weight of it all and sought refuge in the pauses of everyday activities. "Mother Series" has given me a space to breathe, collect, and interpret the severity of becoming and being a "good" mother.
Cherries, Pit, and Ames' Lost Tooth 2020
"Cherries, Pit, and Ames' lost Tooth" is a playful interpretation of domesticity gone astray. Cherries which signify sweetness and purity have taken a turn for the worst. Ames' broken tooth is a domestic terror that is at once comical and weighted. Is this lost tooth a coming of age tale or one that lifts the veil of perfection?
Flower Hair 2020
"Flower Hair" is part of an ongoing series depicting my experience of becoming, and being a mother. All of the photographs in this series are conceptual constructions of my children and I, that are at once a truth and a collaboration. In this particular construction my identity is described only in reference to symbols of purity and love, while the rest of me is obliterated. Motherhood is precious and raw; wonderful and dark

Jennifer Georgescu's conceptual photographs describe the instinctual aspects of humanity correlating to and differing from societal structuring. With a background in painting and photographic arts, she utilizes medium format film photography, installation, and digital technology. Her projects analyze dualisms in language, relationships, mythologies and control. "I often search for a balance that exists between these dichotomies. This is how I view humanity; always teetering on the line between fiction and reality, domination and submissiveness, self and other."
Georgescu is based out of San Diego, CA and Basel, Switzerland. She is a recipient of the John Chervinsky Scholarship, through which she was awarded a solo exhibition at the Griffin Museum of Photography and a monetary grant in 2019. Her ongoing project, “Mother Series” has received international recognition and was the 2020 grant recipient of the William Male Foundation of San Diego, CA.
