Opening in Toronto on Wednesday, the Life After Birth Project is a travelling gallery highlighting women’s stories that honour their transformative birthing experiences. Featuring work from lifestyle photographer Genevieve Charbonneau, the exhibit features stories from 250 women who boldly shared their stories after giving birth, including celebrities Amy Schumer, Jemima Kirke, Jillian Harris and Ricki Lake, as well as the CEO of Knix, Joanna Griffiths.
The gallery focuses on rare-sighted depictions of postpartum bodies – with mothers caring for their babies or posing alone, showing their stretch marks, scars, or loose skin.
