Inspiring Moms

I am meeting the most amazing mothers. I'm not sure what I expected when I started. I walk away from every meeting moved by these women who have so much to give.

Promo for Salem State Exhibition

exhibition dates: Oct 5 - Nov 4
reception Wednesday Oct 13 from 2-3pm

This new series of photographs by Kim Mimnaugh is intensely personal.
“My son has autism; which has made me see and question the world in a new way. I’m photographing my son out of love and also for the quirky exchanges we have while the camera is out. He is very visual and enjoys making photographs with me and by himself.”
“I’m also interested telling other mother’s and son’s stories through a series of portraits. Through these portraits, I hope to change the way the viewer looks at a person with autism and also see that relationship between a mother and son.”
Kim Mimnaugh is an accomplished photographer with an MFA in Photography from Massachusetts College of Art.  She has worked and taught at Salem State since 1991. Kim has produced many bodies of work, and while the content may be widely varied her photographs all share an arresting intensity, which both startles and touches those who view them.

This is one of my first portraits. 
My goal in making this work is to push myself creatively. 
And photograph other moms like myself who live with autism.
Why? I feel that moms who have children with ASD have a greater connection with them.
