Milky Way

“I tried to show how breastfeeding appears as a pulse that gradually takes its part in the other cycles of life – such as those of nature, the seasons, and of days and nights.”

Milky Way is a series of photographs by Vincent Ferrane of his wife and child breastfeeding. The aesthetic aspect is determined by the feeding behaviour which imposes geometry on their bodies and on the spaces they occupy.  From these everyday moments emerges the force of exchanges between two beings and the milk becomes, as in the Greek legend of the Milky Way, the vector of a world under construction.
