This was taken in high school for an art project. We were each given black and white disposable cameras (yes, before digital photography was an everyday item!) with the assignment to capture loneliness. Sure, it’s posed but it stuck out to me.
It’s almost mother’s day and I would like to wish all mothers everywhere the very best. Although this is a dark photo, it has purpose.
The headstones my mom is kneeling by are baby memorials. It took my mom 5 years to have me and an additional 5 years for my sister. She was told she would never have kids. She nearly gave up after a miscarriage. This photo is for all the mothers who lost a child.
