Symbiosis/Birth of a Mother (2016 -)
Birth of a Mother is a photo project in which the photographer followed a woman for over a year. She became fascinated by her pregnancy, the physical exposure, the internal and external developments and the surrender that the mother experienced.
Intrigued by the changing body, the series shows an intimate portrait of the instinctive process towards motherhood.
This project has been shown at Notre Dame des Arts (2020) and during; Helsinki Photofestival 2018, The Family of No Man at Cosmos Arles Books 2018. It was selected as a ‘runner-up’ for the Photographique Analogue Award 2018 in Bristol.
The exhibition at Notre Dame des Arts was made possible by; Provincie Gelderland.
