the first written birth

photographer: prabh kaur
art direction: rupi kaur

this series was shot as the first promotional campaign for her book ‘milk and honey’. the vision behind it was to allow viewers to enter the subject’s vulnerability. the writing of milk and honey was a long. laborous. and cathartic process. done mostly within the confinement of her own room. in her own bed. it was important that readers were able to feel that vulnerability through the photos. see that she was offering the world her bare soul and asking them to protect it.
