DESCRIPTION

The birth of a child is also the birth of a mother. Her body carries a second beating heart. When that second heart suddenly beats outside the body, everything changes. The return to a new normal starts slowly.

A Second Beating Heart« tells the story of Martha, a newborn mother, using documentary and autofictional strategies. A few days after giving birth to her first child, Martha no longer leaves the house.

What begins insidiously becomes a new reality. For almost three years the house becomes a shelter, a prison and a cocoon at the same time.

What many people experienced these years as a compulsion or an external necessity, the isolation at home, becomes a vital strategy for Martha: Inner spaces become outer spaces and vice versa. A photo art book about the many sides of motherhood, about love and postpartum depression, a topic that is too often kept silent.
