Full Circle is a series that provides an intimate glimpse into the lives of many mothers raising their children alone under various circumstances. It tells stories of success, hope, struggle, and triumphs. This dual visual exploration simultaneously explores the female image through history and is meant to empower and celebrate our roles in society and the unconditional relationships with our children. Our beauty reflects one another; a circle of shared experiences, wisdom, and nurturing.
