This self initiated series investigates the transformations of the female body during pregnancy.
The motivation behind this project was of a personal nature, as a way of emotionally coming to terms with a few of my close friends becoming pregnant for the first time in close succession.

 

By approaching the pregnant belly in a highly graphical way I tried to lift it from its usual contexts and transform it into something akin to more to an object. Exemplifying its alienness despite it being the most natural process imaginable.
