Luciana Bello

From an early age, I wanted to be an artist (draftsman, painter, dancer) or a doctor (those who "help babies get out of their belly"). Some of my favorite childhood books were "Where the Babies Come From"; "Mom, how was I born?" and "Born This Way," which I have to this day, more than 30 years later.

Only life is life! And it takes different directions, does not it? I graduated in Law! But I never lost my love for childbirth, for art, for people. Only years later, I was finally able to begin to study photography. My goal was to unite the love of always for the art of capturing moments in the form of photos, the love for births. I studied a lot, and I saw that it was exactly what I wanted. In addition, I ended up falling in love with documentary photography, humanistic and photojournalistic photography. I seek to see what no one sees, beauty beautiful and undisclosed.

I believe that birth photography is a record of births and "rebirths." The baby is born and the mother is reborn, the woman. The feminine widens, the world gains new colors. A companion is born, brothers, uncles and aunts, grandparents and great-grandparents ... There is nothing more beautiful than witnessing the (re) birth of so many beings together. To photograph a childbirth is to put into images a whirlwind of dreams and feelings: love, joy, enthusiasm ... fears and uncertainties too, why not? tears and smiles ...
