Anyone would agree that raising a child is anything but child’s play. Exhibiting parents down on their hands and knees, the project reflects on different aspects of the parental role. It emphasizes the subservient nature of parenthood and confronts us with a vulnerability that we are not accustomed to associate with our parents. At the same time, the soft, pink carpet under them feels inviting and reminds us of playing on the floor. The uncomfortable position the models are captured in, does not exclude pride. It’s a kneeling out of care, commitment and love, and the vulnerability that comes with the discomfort of this position, that I wanted to capture in these images.
