Motherhood may be many things, but the overriding consensus is that it is simply not easy; Mother by Elinor Carucci, a photographer born in Jerusalam, Israel, and based in New York City, is a photo series that attests to that sentiment. As raw as it is poignant, the images could be considered the uncensored side of raising a child. Dark and moody, it captures scenes that are often left in the privacy of the home.

Yet Mother by Elinor Carucci happens to be inspired by the framework of more traditional portrayals of the mother such as those portrayed in Renaissance paintings. Yet the art historical Virgin Mary has nothing on Carucci. Beautiful Decay writes, "Mother transforms our understanding of the divine, expanding it to apply to real, mortal women, our bodies and our fears."
