a wall of photographs of women taking birth. This piece was initially intriguing because I assumed all of the pictures did not have a theme. There was a shock when I realized it was all women giving birth, a normally stigmatized and alarming sight and then there was relief because it’s the one universal action that has been taken for life to become life.
These vintage pictures against yellow paper was stark and beautiful. I think they represent the era in a nostalgic way that reminds me of a film reel.
The composition of this is alarming yet calm. The blood splatter and close angle are mixed with the solid figures standing.
