NEWBORN

  • Photographer
    Hugh Peachey

Universally relatable and deeply humanized are the subjects depicted in Peachey’s Newborn Series… The viewer instantly recognizes the parental battle scars notably unkempt hair, milk stained clothes and shadowy eyes …darkly lit our subjects are still standing against all odds, sleep deprived midnight feeding and their babies harrowing cries as they navigate the bewildering landscape of the newborn. Peachey's series captures an unbridled and raw beauty in his worn and afflicted subjects; we recognize in their gaze the beguiling spectrum of human emotion from strength and hope to tenuous vulnerability. An ethereal glow of light shrouds the subjects as if to acknowledge their nobility, strength and hope.
