'Eye Mama' Captures a Lesser-Known View on Motherhood
Spotlighting the gaze of female and non-binary photographers.
Eye Mama: Poetic Truths of Home and Motherhood is a new book celebrating the essence of the mama narrative and the mama gaze, offering an intimate glimpse into the lives of female and non-binary photographers as they capture their perspectives on home and caregiving.
Inspired by the Eye Mama Project, which curates images from mothers worldwide, the title showcases over 200 powerful and evocative photographs, unveiling what is often hidden from view— the core of caregiving, motherhood, family, and post-motherhood self-reflection.
Conceived during the pandemic when individuals spent more time at home, deeply engaged in caregiving, the Eye Mama movement is led by Karni Arieli, a BAFTA-nominated filmmaker and photographer.
Featuring a foreword by Alessia Glaviano, head of Global Photo Vogue, and Annie Wang, an internationally renowned photographer and artist, Eye Mama: Poetic Truths of Home and Motherhood stands as a potent tribute to the profound journey of motherhood and the power of visual storytelling.
Eye Mama: Poetic Truths of Home and Motherhood is now available via Eye Mama project’s website and retails for $50 USD.
