The images from this project are significant because mothers are so often captured with their children - as if to say that their offspring is their only significance. We knew it was important to allow the mother to be first and foremost in this series of portraits we shot in collaboration with fashion photographer - Dapper Lou and Shabazz.
The VR Experience above is displayed at events around the world, like DAVOS, in order to help connect viewers with the story of motherhood for those without significant resources to deliver their babies. While this VR experience takes place in Tanzania, the devastation of poor resources stretches all over the globe. In fact, many do not know that the United States is the only country where maternal mortality is on the rise.
