Part of a larger series to be made into a book
The collection of images in the series is titled Tunnel Vision and includes images from my own home about my maternal relationship with my son and family. The idea of maternal bliss really should be about the challenges that come with that bliss. That it is difficult to see past the chaos and disruption that having a child brings into your own personal space and any relationships that exist outside of the home life.
These images are meant to emphasize the chaos of maternal responsibilities and the narrowing or constricting view that this chaos can bring, shot with an iPhone they act like family snapshots but in response to the societal ideal of the pure joy and bliss of motherhood.
