‘More Than Just a Mum’, a photography exhibition celebrating the changing face pf modern motherhood. The exhibition features 20 of the UK’s most influential and creative women, such as Pippa Vosper, Stylist and Harper’s Bazaar fashion editor and Alex Box, world-famous make-up artist, in their role as mothers. The images are by acclaimed photographers and mums Jenny Lewis and Tara Darby. Jenny has shot a wide variety of personalities from the Beastie Boys to Juliette Binoche in her decade as a portrait photographer, whilst Tara, a London-based photographer, has had work featured in publications such as Another, Twin and Japanese Vogue.
The show is curated by Jenny Scott, founder of cool parenting collective, Mothers-Meeting in conjunction with Sian Williams, founder of Baby-Friendly Boltholes, the online directory of boutique baby-friendly holiday accommodation.
Scott says: “The exhibition will be a celebration of modern motherhood, correcting the preconception that once a woman becomes a mother her whole world, career and identity grinds to a halt. This exhibition aims to inspire every single mamma and show the rest of the world motherhood is not the end of a woman’s life, it’s just the beginning.”
Mothers-Meeting is an online and offline collective for creative mums who want to talk about more than just nappies and nipple cream. It is a forum for new mums who love fashion, culture and art to share parenting tips and inspiring stories. Its a one-stop shop for stay at home mums who are sick of daytime TV and trawling twee baby blogs. Its an inspiring crew of mums who workout together and socialise at galleries, members clubs and retreats, all with tots in tow.
