Life Writing Paper

Digital Photography

Wax paper is always used to protect food, to keep water out or to keep water in. When a human being is born, he/she is coated with vernex caseosa, a white substance to protect the delicate newborn skin. I choose to work with wax paper, because I love how transparent, sensitive and fragile, yet strong it is. I see similarities between the vernex caseoa, motherhood and wax paper.
