The Guardians

This body of work explores issues surrounding the mutable nature of the female form and the psychological changes that occur during pregnancy. Focusing on the split in identity and loss of a prior self, the work investigates the notion that there is a lower level of importance placed on the woman as soon as she is visibly pregnant. These images examine the reality of pregnancy and the trauma on the mother, in contrast to the commonly depicted glamorous celebrity image of this fundamental life experience.

With thanks to Artful Dodgers.
