I must say I am not really keen on babies. I think everyone has already met one of those people who can admirate, nearly beatific, a new born and say : “oh he/she is so beautiful…”. Is it so difficult to admit that a baby is not the best example of beauty ? They are already traumatise to meet our world and, like it was not enough, the first things they hear is an hypocrisy ?
But I must admit that the work of the australian photographer, Anne Geddes, born in 1956, is a success. Babies are used as a symbol of fragility and innocence.
And how will they evolute those innocents ?
Everyone was a baby, a child. Everyone changes for the best and the worse.
A baby is not dangerous. Just a peaceful, carefree being. Be a baby is the beautiest time of life : nothing to do, just sleep and be loved.
Anne Geddes, beyond the contrast man/baby like force/fragility, like a filiation, an evolution, a renewal ; makes compositions with the nature : flowers, animals.
Inventive and pure.
