Commissioned Works

Showing began with the simple idea of showcasing visibly pregnant women at work—at home, in offices, in classrooms, at stores, outdoors, or in the field. Strangely few such pictures, contemporary or historical, existed.

The lack of photography addressing an increasingly and highly prevalent reality of life spoke to the very issues the project sought to address through imagery: that families must integrate the practical and emotional demands of earning a living and caring for a family, and that in contemporary American society, this challenge is almost always privately managed.
