Mums On Film Magazine – Out of the blue
This product is currently sold out.
Ever since I became pregnant with little Olivia, I started to feel the shift. As most people had rightly predicted everything was going to change. Beliefs, priorities, the way I looked at the world, my long showers in the evening (*sighs*)… all of that went out the window the second she got here. I was taken aback by all the surprises maternity had kept for me. But right from the early stages of my pregnancy what shook me the most was the way in which mass media portrays motherhood. Simply unrelatable.
Being a photographer myself, I set out on a mission to depict a truer version of what motherhood looks like. This is how Mums on film was born, in the attempt of diving deep into what being a mother really means in this day and age. I started talking to the lovely mums that came into my studio and gathering more and more definitions on what motherhood represented for each one of them. I was so fascinated by their stories and their truth that all I could do was share.
In the hope of promoting more acceptance and less prejudice, here’s the first issue of the Mums on film magazine.
Anna Rigau is the photographer behind Mums on film, a project that unveils a more honest view on motherhood. Mums on film wants to portray and share the multiple definitions of what being a mother really means.
The project started back when Olivia, the daughter of Anna, was born. She was constantly taking pictures to capture and cherish each moment with her. She knew other mums would feel the same way and she thought, why not take their picture as well? Her intention is to show the unfiltered beauty in motherhood. Working with natural light and film, without editing the pictures, so she can really capture their truth in each photograph.
Mums On Film is publication where Anna hopes to continue to share more and more stories from real mums.

THOUGHTS BEHIND THE MAGAZINE
We think that this publication is a wonderful insight how every mum experiences motherhood individually. It shows the wonder of giving birth to a human being and the less bright sides, which are as much as a part of motherhood as the blissed ones. However, society most of the time doesn't dare to speak about it yet. Mums On Film is a beautiful attempt to shift that. Soft, minimalistic photos and honest words shared for or all mums and dads (to be) out there.
