Up Close and Personal
In 1965, the book A Child Is Born was published, by A. Ingelman-Sundberg. It was a illustrated with photography by Lennart Nilsson, documenting for the first time the "drama of life before birth." It is a stunning, groundbreaking work. I sought it out for my art, remembering it fondly from when I was pregnant with my now-adult daughter. She is going to be celebrating her first wedding anniversary soon. So, as a mother, as an aging woman, I have cause to be reflecting on the dance of Life. This piece is born of those meditations.
