Mère by Julie Scheurweghs

£26.00

In her debut book Mère, we see the artist Julie Scheurweghs in different stages of labour. Scheurweghs' natural home birth took 16 hours, and while being by her side, the whole process was closely documented by her partner. Later, while going through the photographs Scheurweghs noticed the details that accurately matched her recollections from the day. She claimed the photographs by cropping them to their bare essence, creating a new body of work showing the intensity of the experience. The skin-close, uncensored and heartfelt photographs of heavy contractions alternated with calm moments in between show us not only a baby being born, but the birth of a mother as well.

 

"There is a great power in giving birth, one of transformation, hope and new beginnings. I want to share this with the world and I hope that women can find comfort in the work.“

 

Scheurweghs’ work is centered around womanhood: what it means to be a woman in this world, motherhood, intimate family life, and the female view. Ever since becoming a mother herself, Scheurweghs has focused on documenting the experience of giving birth in particular.

Suggested use: 

After cleansing, whilst your skin is still moist, add a couple of drops of boobs’essential oil to your hands, rub your hands to activate the aroma and inhale deeply, then massage your breasts in a circular motion covering your entire breasts to become familiar with how they feel, to activate your lymphatic system and and to be able to notice any changes. Follow a pattern and be sure that you cover your whole breasts. For example, you can begin at the nipple, moving in larger and larger circles until you reach the outer edge. Whilst doing so, make sure to breathe deeply and inhale the soothing warm and woody scent of the oil.
