Marina, 35mm digital print. Sold

In a way, we all take part in a pregnancy. Once the baby is born becomes a family affair. Going further with this reflection, for some mad reason probably connected to my personal history, I had never had a chance or desire to hold a baby in hands. It was too much for me. It made me feel a mixture of feelings I had never been able to manage. On the day I met Marina, she was given to me unexpectedly so I did not have alternative. I held her and the feeling I had myself denied for years came true. A wonderful experience difficult to explain in words. Instead, I decided to reproduce it with this poignant photograph.
