This collaborative project explores various themes associated with motherhood through a series of environmental portraits and interviews with women, some mothers, some not. The primary aim of which was to provide an accessible platform for women to share their experiences of choice, pregnancy, miscarriage, childbirth, expectation and adoption, as well as issues concerning mental health, post-natal depression, alienation, and trauma. Through an on-going podcast, a newspaper-format publication, and a film, I hope this body of work resonates with other women and raises awareness, amongst men and women alike, of individuality and specificity within differing experiences of motherhood. Subsequently, I hope it highlights the importance of open discussion and peer support in attempting to overcome hardship.
