These images are both beautiful and haunting. I was especially effected by the pictures of the mother sleeping nude on the bed while the boy plays video games, as well as the image of the mother on the exercise machine with the baby strapped to her chest.

This is such an example of the effects of our independent culture. We are not meant to raise children alone. the nuclear family doesn’t make sense. “It takes a village to raise a child” – this is a statement I whole heartedly believe in. We are communal creatures, and I believe we can have it all…we just need to learn how to share the load with one another.

    I’m a part time stay at home father and I can relate to the feeling of isolation that I think some of these images portray. I guess it’s time for me to find a village. 🙂
