Description: In a composition free of landscape, narrative elements or even personal accoutrements, Erni directs the focus on the bodies and connectivity of a new family. The man and women, their physical link to each and and the child they made together almost tangible, fold lovingly towards one another and their newborn child as the mother takes it to the breast. The strength and protection comes not just from the mother alone, but from the family as a whole.
