'I see my unborn children in his eyes'
This work is an exploration of the loss of dreams associated with infertility. The topic of infertility is shrouded in silence affecting one in six couples, striking at the heart of human psyche. It is the loss of an anticipated life experience that has such a devastating experience on the lives of infertile people. It challenges the individuals perception of self requiring a reinvention of their identity. Other forms of grief frequently have tangible photographs as mourning objects. Infertile couples mourn the loss of their absent children who they do not get the opportunity to know. These photographs are an exploration and visual expression of the everyday images of loss that infertile people carry in their minds and grieve for.
