Happy Mother’s Day to my dear mom and stepmom ❤️

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms in the world. Mothers, grandmothers, mothers-in-law, new moms in the making, mother’s who’ve lost and mother’s that have passed.

Sending an extra bit of love to the ones who have lost their moms already. An extra bit of love to the ones who have a broken or a difficult relationship with their mom. An extra bit of love to the ones who want to become a mother but are experiencing a hard journey. An extra bit of love to the single moms out there, by choice or not. And to all the women who give us the feeling of warm mom arms around us.

WHILE SHE WAITS- shows the emotional transformation during the last months of her pregnancy in a poetic and melancholic way.

In a subtle choreography a woman slowly desengages from a familiar and structured world, about to enter a world yet unknown to her. While She Waits shows the emotional transformation during the last months of her pregnancy in a poetic and melancholic way. What happens during the long waiting until the unknown reveals itself? And how do we align a child being born with ourselfes being reborn as a mother?
