Ours... When my wife Steffi gave birth to our son we had almost no notion of how life altering that event would be, but we did have an inkling from what friends and family who’d been there, told us. Being a photographer I set out to capture a few “golden” moments before and after our child’s birth. I was trying to capture all of the occurrences around the hub, in this case Steffi’s hospital room, I noticed that every person brought in his or her unique perspective to the matter at hand, that is, our child’s arrival, which was surprising considering that it’s invariably what most married women go through.
This got me thinking how, this one event, momentous though it was, was just a slice of our lives, all of one week, yet it evoked in each of us a slightly different emotion and undoubtedly a different memory. And so it must, since that is what makes life complex and the job of people like me who attempt to record slivers of life, interesting.
What did those who shared in our little vignette see and remember, what they experienced and felt, through their own unique prism of life and their profession; that is what I wish to capture in this series of photographs. To walk a mile in their shoes, to see life through their minds, to take a peek into their hearts, hopefully, is what I plan to do.
