Parenthood – May’s Assignment

This month’s assignment is inspired by Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. Exploring the concept of parenthood photographically seemed to be an appropriate assignment for this time between the two holidays. The relationship of parent and child is a unique one and changes from species to species. How do you represent such a complex relationship in images? Are the images literal or metaphoric? It’s quite a challenge. Remember, you aren’t limited to photographing people.

Aaugh! Can’t open the April Gallery page. Please help.

Meanwhile, thanks for the May assignment; and, I believe you’re quite right: it will be a challenge.
