Marie Lactans

Lucila Newell with Camillo, 2014

The experience of motherhood has given me great perspective on many things but one aspect I have felt very passionate about is breastfeeding. Lily was tongue tied so I struggled for months to establish a breastfeeding relationship but once I did I felt I was experiencing one of the most wonderful natural phenomena: human milk, designed to heal and nurture child and mother.

It seems strange to me that such a powerful process should be so invisible in our culture, so to this end I have started planning a series of images of breastfeeding 'Madonna Lactans'. Watch this space!!
