Heading into week 7 of my @time assignment about parenting and caregivers in New York City. My story’s protagonists are often as interested in me, as I am in them. Little Jamison and Thatcher had a lot of questions about how my Hasselblad works- here they check out a frame of their mum on the roof top. @katattack42@paulmoakley
@sebmeyerphoto is publishing a book with Red Hook Editions titled, Under Every Yard of Sky, about what happened to Kurdistan in the ten years he photographed there and about what happened to his friend Kamaran Najm, a beautiful photographer and human being who was kidnapped by IS in 2014. I just ordered the limited edition with a print here https://bit.ly/2QHxK52
This is the last photograph Kamaran Najm made before he was wounded and then kidnapped by IS in Kirkuk.
His is one of the most beautiful and painful stories I know- you can hear it on NPR’s Rough Translation, about how he and @sebmeyerphoto founded Iraq’s first photo agency, @metrography_agency, how he was kidnapped and how his friends and family tried to find him. Listen to part 1 here https://www.npr.org/2019/05/29/727877943/the-search-part-1

Min-Sook Park (44) at home with her daughter Ju-hyun (7) in Danyang town, Korea. Min-Sook suffered from breast cancer, infertility and miscarriage after working at a Samsung semiconductor factory for 7 years. From a report on the toxic legacy of Samsung factories for Bloomberg.
Olga Grinik and her son, Kirill, (centre) picnic in a forest on the outskirts of Avdeevka in Donestsk Oblast, Ukraine. Before the war they would picnic in the forest next to their house. Now it’s a restricted military area, so they drove to this picturesque meadow with a lake view by horse and cart to make a barbecue of chicken wings, potatoes and eggplants. Here they chatted, played with the kids and foraged for mushrooms all afternoon. The open-air was accompanied by the never-ending sound of shelling and gunfire at the nearby frontline, but nobody paid any attention.

Shamina Yasmin gave birth to her daughter, Sharmin, in a forest after fleeing a Burmese army attack on her Rohingya village, Taung Bazar. When her waters broke Shamina had been walking for four days-- she'd not eaten, had no water and laboured all night occasionally attended to by another fleeing woman who used a thorn from forest cane to cut Sharmin's umbilical cord when she was delivered. It took another 10 days for them to reach Bangladesh.Kutupalong refugee camp, Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh.
I'm currently working on a big project for @time about the caregivers who raise New York’s children, the ways women find to balance motherhood with work, today, and the daily rhythm of life for children growing up in the city. As always, the process of photographing also allows for personal exploration - as a woman in my late- thirties I am coming to understand the ways motherhood may or may not be possible for me in the future. Produced in collaboration with Fotografiska and TIME, I’m delighted to present this new work as one of the inaugural shows of Fotografiska New York opening on the 5th of September 2019.
I've been photographing parenting and motherhood for years. Here, an expectant mother waits for an ultrasound scan at Stepanakert Maternity Hospital in Nagorno Karabakh. Any couple married after 1st January 2008 will benefit from the defacto government’s Birth Encouragement Program, which gives cash payments for each baby born.
