50 Year Old Forgotten Photos of Motherhood by Ken Heyman.
Photographer Ken Heyman recently uncovered a box he had tucked away for 50 years in a storage facility. This box was simply labeled “Mothers” and contained images he took 50 years ago as part of a Pulitzer nominated book entitled Family.
Although Heyman published the photos almost 50 years ago, the mothers in the pictures are just as busy as their modern-day counterparts laughing, multi-tasking, rocking and loving their children.
Ken Heyman has done photographic assignments for many magazines, including Life. He has worked for the U.S. Information Agency, photographing Alliance for Progress projects in Latin America, and for several photographic agencies, including Rapho Guillumette Agency and Magnum.
Ken Heyman has done many books in addition to Family and World Enough. His recent works includes twenty-two books for children written by Ann Morris. The multicultural perspective in these acclaimed books reflects Heyman’s varied experience and his ability to sensitively interpret the human condition.
