Jenny Lewis usually takes portraits of well-known celebrities, but in her photo project “One Day Young” mothers and their newborn babies are in the spotlight. The babies aren’t older than 24 hours and she didn’t know any of the mothers beforehand.
Lewis’ aim was to capture the extraordinary bonding between mother and child. This bonding can be seen in a variety of different emotions on the mothers’ faces.
“Motherhood really brings people together, it doesn’t matter how much money you’ve got, or what your job is, you’ve just done this amazing thing so everyone feels joyous and proud,” Lewis said.
