About the Book
Motherhood has long been a subject within art, the stereotypical and idealistic views on motherhood have created a pressure for mothers to meet certain expectations. Courageous mothers are the cornerstone of today and motherhood is different for each individual, some having much more complex circumstances. This photography book explores mothers that share unique stories, complexities such as mothers of children with learning disabilities or difficulties, mothers with illnesses, women who have lost children and same sex parenting mothers. Despite the diversity in each mother-child relationship, what they all share is courage and maternal passion. The book consists of portrait photography and text along with disposable camera images by the mothers that show a closer insight to their lives.
