Since the release of Home Truths: Photography and Motherhood,
I have been writing more widely around the theme of motherhood and
representation. In October 2013 The Guardian asked me to comment
on images of breastfeeding and postpartum bodies. Following on
from this I focused on current celebrity culture for the Photoworks
Annual suggesting that motherhood has become a precious commodity
through which media profiles are serviced and maintained.
You can read it here (pdf).

I also wrote about Elinor Carucci's monograph Mother for TIME
LightBox
and talked about some of the ideas behind the process of
curating Home Truths for Photomonitor and TIME Lightbox.
