"We Are The Sunflowers"
I was struck by the beauty carried in the different bodies around me in the field.
Then brought to my knees on the asphalt at the realization,
that in all of the chaos. . . They Were Sunflowers.
Created from a small seed, growing and changing.
Eventually blooming, bringing joy, and creating seeds of their own.
Stepping back into the shadows to cultivate those new seedlings. . .
While still holding tightly to their own identities.
We are the Sunflowers. . .
We are Mothers. . . and we are not a purpose apart from beauty.
Your beauty is a unique part of who you are.
I got a bunch of beautiful mothers together and we celebrated our bodies. We popped champagne. We posed. We smiled. We laughed and then they all followed me home to pose in a streetlight.
Below are letters written by each woman to her body accompanied by images of her during her time with me during our group shoot. I hope you take time to read through each letter and maybe even thank your own body for giving you what it has. No matter what that might be.
