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

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.
