Touching, Unguarded Portraits of Sleeping Parents-to-Be
« on: November 24, 2018, 10:52:33 AM »
A few years ago, Russian photographer Jana Romanova’s social life took a turn. All of a sudden, it seemed, all of her friends had become pregnant.

Just as quickly, all their conversations turned to children: things they needed to buy, changes they needed to make to their homes, and the daily difficulties of pregnancy. “It was a challenge for me to get used to it,” Romanova said via email. “I always try to solve my problems with photography, so I decided to make a project about it.”

She started her series, “Waiting,” by photographing her friends sleeping early in the morning in their bedrooms—a time, as she wrote on her website, “when people don’t really care about their appearance and one can see their attitude to each other and to this life that is growing inside their family.”

Cute and creepy at the same time.  I just imagine she broke into these people's home for the sake of art.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Why imagine, when you can read and find out how it was arranged?

So cute.
"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

May the Blessed Light shine Forth

I did read how it was arranged.  Imagination is not limited by what you read.

Beautiful idea.  I do not know if this will catch on immediately or, like a lot of art, will catch on later.
