Queste splendide foto di madri e figli sono state dimenticate per 50 anni in una scatola

Il fotografo Ken Heyman ha ritrovato queste immagini dopo mezzo secolo

Uno scatolone dimenticato, che riemerge durante un trasloco. Ad aprirlo è Ken Heyman, fotografo di 83 anni, premiato in passato anche con il Premio Pulitzer. Sullo scatolone una semplice etichetta: “Mothers”. Dentro, una quantità impressionante di bellissimi scatti di madri e figli che risalgono a oltre 50 anni fa.

Si tratta di immagini che facevano parte del progetto “Family”, curato da Heyman insieme alla celebre antropologa Margaret Mead e incentrato sul concetto di maternità in varie parti del mondo.

È passato mezzo secolo, ma la potenza e la dolcezza di queste foto è rimasta immutata.
