Jenny Lewis's portraits of women and their newborns - all taken within 24 hours of birth in East London - offer a rare glimpse into the beating heart of family life and celebrate the intimacy, joy and resilience of new motherhood.
Jenny Lewis moved to Hackney almost twenty years ago via a spell at Preston University where she acquired a Fine Art degree and a husband. Since then she has made her living as an editorial photographer but continues to pursue a range of personal work. Much of this centres on her experience of living and working in East London.
