the ecology of perception

purchasehttp://www.martenberkman.com/martenberkman/purchase.html

Several women have approached me (including my Jennifer!) to photograph their transformation in pregnancy. This has been a humbling honour, to reflect not only the profound beauty of life bearing life, but see intimately the profound transformation a woman’s body must go through in carrying a child. Men can never really know what women endure, but I think we should worship women for the feat that brought every one of us into the world.


A public exhibit was held of several of the photographs, and a selection have been licensed by the Yukon Government Department of Health and Social Services for their Breast Health Awareness Project. When these women heard of the interest in these photographs for public education, every one of them was eager to share these intimate portrayals of their significant journeys.
