England - London - Ella's first year, pelvic floor exercise.
On the living room floor at home, a young mother grabs a few minutes to herself to exercises her pelvic floor muscles three weeks after giving birth to a baby girl who lies asleep in a Moses basket carry cot on the carpet. She rotates her hips to her right, twisting her body to regain strength in her lower torso, still sore from labour. This is from a documentary series of pictures about the first year of the photographer's first child Ella. Accompanied by personal reflections and references from various nursery rhymes, this work describes his wife Lynda's journey from expectant to actual motherhood and for Ella - from new-born to one year-old.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
