Artist Talk: Polly Braden (online)

18.30 BST (on Zoom)

Join photographer Polly Braden for a talk on her project Holding the Baby.

Holding the Baby is a two-year documentary project involving single parent families. Over the course of two years, Braden worked closely with seven families to create a body of work that captures moments of quiet, joy and adventure between each parent and their child or children.

Braden is joined in conversation by project participant Jahanara Siddika and curator Sinéad McCarthy.

This event coincides with Braden’s exhibition Holding the Baby at Museum of the Home (12 June – 29 August 2021), touring to Open Eye Gallery, Liverpool and Arnolfini Gallery, Bristol.


Polly Braden is a documentary photographer whose work features an ongoing conversation between the people she photographs and the environment in which they find themselves. She works on long-term, self-initiated projects, as well as commissions for international publications.

Sinéad McCarthy is Contemporary Curator at Museum of the Home. Prior to her current role, she worked as Curator with Liverpool Biennial and as Associate Curator at Barbican Centre.

Jahanara Siddika works in Market Research and is a prospective university student. Her dream, since she was in school, is to graduate in Engineering. She is a proud single mother to her two beautiful children.

Details on how to access the talk will be confirmed upon registration. Please check your junk folders if you haven't received an email from TPG staff confirming your place.
