Madonna and Child
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. The mothers I have photographed share unique stories, complexities such as mothers of children with learning difficulties or disabilities, 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.
