Emma is a few months old, in the hospital for severe acute respiratory symptoms. After intensive treatment, she has moved to the children’s ward, where she is able to receive more attention from her mother, who gives her all her dedication and care.
She is so humble and timid that she did not wish to appear in the photo. This expression of unity between Emma and her mother was a profound inspiration to the photographer, who couldn’t resist capturing the image.
