A while back, I came across the work of Ali Smith at momfilter, and made a mental note to find out more. A conversation with a photojournalist friend last week jogged my memory and thankfully, I circled back to Smith’s book project that had initially caught my eye. Smith spent eight years photographing mothers with their children. The resulting project, Momma Love; How the Mother Half Lives, looks like a gorgeous pairing of these photos with text. As I am endlessly interested in and moved by the lives and stories of mothers, I must. have. this. book. All Google searches have left me empty-handed as far as a buying option. Never fear! I will not be deterred! I will find this book.
In the meantime, watch the lovely video trailer for Momma Love:
