Invisible Momma

through February 24


Motherhood is perverse. There are institutions in place that try to place motherhood into something tangible, something measurable, something feeble. I make images that reflect how western society perceives mothers with their children and how I feel towards others seeking to psychologically harm and classify me when I'm with my daughter. Women and children need to learn early how to protect themselves. We need to learn early how to tune into the survival instinct. I am an animal. I want her to know she is an animal, in the best most protective sense of the word. She is strong, she is beautiful, she is dangerous. The work is a series of photographs each depicting a feeling you may get when you are a mother. I have chosen these pieces because I think they best exemplify my experience as a mother. I am hoping that by showing my feelings about the matter the photographs will strike a chord with other mothers and begin a much needed conversation about women supporting other women. About our western society as a whole supporting mothers.
