My work addresses the stigma of breastfeeding in Western society and the associated pressures of motherhood. My photographs respond to this criticism and reflect on the stereotypical judgement of breastfeeding and the physical marks of the postnatal body. With the use of natural lighting and the setting of a home my work mimics the simplicity of a studio whilst reciprocating the nature of motherhood in its raw setting. The use of blue is a response to the veins of mothers as they become more visceral whilst breastfeeding, to which I photograph in all its entirety.
