Free lance photographer
Mother of 3 children, 7 year old daughter and 5 year old twin boys
I don’t think mothering is work, it’s something that has to do with being a human being and sharing your life with other people. I made a choice to live in a couple, to have children and I knew that that meant a lot of my time would be spent with these people. In my photographic work I speak a lot of identity and after I’ve chosen these things to happen to me, I feel as if I’ve lost my old self and need to create a new one for my new life. I can’t always choose freely what I want to do, where or when I want to do it. I need to be “disponibile”, physically and psychologically available to them.
They know I usually have flexible working hours, sometimes they wonder whether I work because I don’t go to the office, so I tell them that sometimes people can and do work from home. I think they quite like what I do. Whenever they see photos around, they are happy to say: “this is mummy’s photo.” I hope they inherit the artistic approach to life.
