'Lost' is the name of a truly poignant and heart-wrenching new photo series, put together by a San Francisco-based photographer by the name of Dianne Yudelson, in which the artist reflects on her deep sense of loss and mourning after suffering 11 miscarriages.

The photos capture mementos that Yudelson kept for each of the 11 babies that she lost through miscarriage. Each photo even captures a little tag on which is written the name of each baby, something that makes for uncomfortable viewing but is necessary to humanize the loss and put it into perspective.

Ultimately, this extraordinarily brave photo series aims to challenge the social norm of silence and stigma that surrounds miscarriage, and create an open space for discussion and grieving around this
