A Grieving Mother
Fine Art Photography
Since 2010, I have traveled eight times working with orphans, the elderly, disabled and poor families. During these trips I photograph the people I meet. Ukrainians still love real photographs, so my first intension is to make a keepsake gift for them. This past January, I meet these two ladies. A Grieving Mother shows the raw emotions after losing her daughter six months ago. She takes care of her four grandchildren and has a very difficult time meeting their basic daily needs. Weeping Mother is an intimate portrait of a mother’s pain after losing her son. Subconsciously, these portraits are a lot like Dorothea Lange’s portraits of people affected by the Great Dust Bowl. They are un-posed and capture a segment of time. These portraits are part of a new project entitled People of Ukraine.
