It’s been a little over a year since Dutch-Croatian artist Sanja Marušić debuted her motherhood-themed photo series “With You,” featuring, color-soaked portraits of her newborn son. (See it all here!) Now the talented mama is back with “With You, Part 2,” a series of vibrant portraits of herself, her partner, and her now 1-year-old son made over a 5-month period. This time around, the project took on another layer of meaning.
“Just two days before I left to make this photo series, my own mom told me she was sick, cancer. I was feeling down and insecure, wanting to be very close to my son, hold him close. You can see that in some photos,” explains Marušić of the new 30-image series. “Later on we got some good news from my mom’s doctor and you can see the transition in these photos, some are a lot more energetic and happy. So the subject of motherhood is double in the photo series.”
