Look on the dark side of life...


Nie wiem, czy rozumiem czym jest macierzyństwo...
Nie wiem, czy fotografia umie opowiedzieć czym ono nie jest...
Wiem, że życie ma setki stron w różnych odcieniach...

Jedną z nich, zapewne tę po lewej stronie wykresu poziomów, zajmuje esej Paula Ruhter'a - "He deserves more".

Nie chcąc tłumaczyć, cytuje autora:

Okay, so here is a three-piece series I worked on for several months. Natasha's Story is not a story about teen pregnancy, but her decision and emotions of giving her baby up for adoption. I followed Natasha and her family through the pregnancy and emotionally photographed the final moments that the family spent with the new baby. A family from Wyoming adopted the baby boy and were present for the birth. Throughout the months, this story had its ups and downs, from a story-telling stand point, but in the end, we were lucky to have gained the trust of a wonderful family to accept us and to let us witness one of the hardest things I've ever had to photograph. Also, this story completely fell into place, as meeting Natasha happened while we were covering her high school as it burned to the ground last year. An inspiring story indeed.Here is a link for a multimedia piece we published for the final story.
