Representations of the single mother

Radcliffe Roye single mother

Brooklyn based, Jamaican photographer Radcliffe Roye’s series on single mothers captures the gaze and aura of single mothers, that look of determination tinged with sadness. A sign of brilliant photography when you want to know more about the image - who is she and what’s her story. Roye taught himself photography on a 21 day walk from Montego Bay to Kingston and now focuses on documentary photography.

As single mothers we are placed in a high risk category for falling through the cracks and the representations often reflect that. The images that represent our role are rarely positive or uplifting.
