A Mother’s Journey

I honestly can’t remember the last time I was moved to write or say something from seeing a series of photos. We live in a world saturated in images that are manufactured to a greater or lesser extent. The way media manipulates real events gives us a jaded outlook on life and the images we consume.

Still, every now and then there are moments when you’re overwhelmed by the power that an image holds. This photo series documenting a single mother and her son’s fight with cancer was one of those moments for me.

Can you imagine what it’s like to bring a child into the world only to be robbed by horrible disease. I can’t but this photo series is sure to make you think just in time for Mother’s day.
