What surprising, fascinating stuff can you tell us about the origin, drafting, and/or final version of this series?

    I have been working on a portfolio that celebrates fragility, transience and magnificence of human experiences, emotions and thoughts. This portfolio combines black and white photos with short texts in poetic forms. For me, visuals complement my writings and nuances in visuals are enhanced by poetry. These particular photos and poetry from the collection are inspired by motherhood and the difference happy events make to our perceptions of the world around us and our place in it.
