Finished Storefront

I completed Storefront Comtemplation a couple of days ago.  See the previous posts for the progression.

I'm working on a new series of intimate portraits that explores the female in the role of mother and wife.  The series seeks to communicate the draining aspects of these roles on women.  This is not to say that these roles don't also bring tremendous joy to women, but there is no doubt that it is possible for women to pour all of themselves into these two particular roles, thus losing or subjugating other aspects of their personhood.  The series is intended to be graphic and at times seemingly inappropriate as a juxtaposition of how motherhood and wifehood are normally portrayed. 

The first in the series is "Milked."
