Mummy Dearest

As a photographer to take pictures of close family is always the biggest challenge. Even though they might have done that earlier in life in an innoccent, naive way.

Theo Wenner, son of Rolling Stone founder Jann Wenner, took the pictures of Jann´s former wife Jane throughout 2018, documenting his seventy-year-old mother in her house in Amagansett, New York, where she has finally found solace following the most difficult years of her life.

In this intimate study, Wenner paints an emotional portrait of his mother, her surroundings, her dogs, and the friends and family that come and go, as the seasons change and the house shifts from summer to winter. Beautifully designed by Geoff Han, the photo book will be published on October 20 by Rizzoli.

To get an idea you might read the story of our friends at, they actually covered the introduction to the book by Jane Wenner´s loyal friend Aatish Taseer.
