Universal Motherhood

A journey through the lottery of birth.

A unique series of powerful, intimate photographs showcasing the universal experience of motherhood, captured by a series of world-renowned female photographers: Sian Davey, Bieke Depoorter, Diana Markosian, Carlota Guerrero and Dana Popa. The exhibition also features a light installation, ‘Seconds Pass’ by artist Aphra Shemza.

An exhibition by the Save the Children and GSK partnership, created by Anagram. 

12 Dec 2018 – 19 Jan 2019* 

Late Openings: 13, 14, 19, 20 Dec until 7 pm.  (*Closed 23 Dec – 1 Jan)

Five photographers documented live births from around the globe to create a striking visual collection which captures the raw emotion and intimacy of the first days of motherhood.

The exhibition, which opens on Universal Health Coverage (UHC) Day, highlights why all women should have access to essential healthcare and that no mother should be forced to give birth without a skilled health worker by her side.

Each of the mothers in this exhibition gave birth successfully, but their stories are a moving reminder of how different it could have been if they had been forced to give birth without medical support.
