We’re excited to share with you a brilliant photo series by the talented Alex Baker. In response to the Royal Dutch Airlines policy on breastfeeding while abroad their flights - Alex started a project where she photographs and interviews new mothers like herself that have been faced with guilt and shame while breastfeeding in public. We love how Alex uses the Infinite Color Panel to color grade and match the themes of invisibility and postpartum depression. Check out the story and Alex’s stunning images below!
“I wanted to create this project in the first three months of my son's life, as a way of processing all these unexpected feelings of anxiety, anger and sadness that I suddenly felt,” says Alex.
“After reading about KLM's poor treatment of a woman breastfeeding on a flight I realized that it was important that my project needed to be released now.”
This Is Motherhood is an ongoing project; Alex plans to develop the series with further portraits of mothers feeding their children of a variety of ages. You can follow her project here.
It will be shown in a gallery in Valencia, Spain, in October 2019 as part of a collective exhibition of female artists.
