Reinhild Beuther is a photographer who uses photography as a means to a
very specific end. Beholden is a new commission and is the first in a
series of collaborations between Focal Point Gallery and University of
Hertfordshire Galleries. The work consists of four large-scale lightboxes
and a video piece.

For 'Beholden', Beuther has created portraits of her closest family,
involving the artist, her partner and their son and their parents. The
result is a striking similarity in the structure of the faces and, yet,
such a difference in expression.
