4th trimester portraiture


Through The Mother’s Look I am embarking on a new (to me) branch of photography themed "4th trimester photography." I am developing a collection of portraits of mothers that will challenge society's contrived notions of female identity/beauty, specifically those of motherhood. This is an evident theme in recent social media and current events and I would like to contribute to this discourse through my own lens.

The project’s goal is to capture portraits of women who are mothers in a manner that is artistic, tasteful and natural while also capturing both an essence of motherhood and of woman herself. The woman may have stretch marks, or extra skin. She may be a small or bigger girl. She may be breastfeeding, she may be an athlete, she may be an artist, she may have a young child, or an old child. She may have multiple children. She may have lost children. She may have found children. She may have grandchildren. There is no “one woman” in this project.

The Mother’s Look project is a collection of digital photographs depicting mother’s bodies. The images in The Mother’s Look project are created in such a way that the lighting and poses tell a truth about the mother’s body that is (at times) absent from mainstream media, but that is beautiful and worthy of a look. In addition to posing for photos with their children, the mothers also pose with props that they believe represent an element of their authentic self. Photos are paired with the mother’s words [TBD for Facebook]. The juxtaposition of the bodies and the words results in a celebration of the female experience.

Please send me a private message or email (jessica.L.wyatt[at]gmail.com) if you would like more information or to participate in this project.
