The Many Faces of Breastfeeding
The Nearness of We, an exhibit of portraits celebrating the sense of community brought about by breastfeeding, opened yesterday at The Podium Mall. It will run until August 13, 2017, after which it will move to SM Aura Premier from August 14 to 17, 2017. Presented by Mommy Mundo, The Nearness of We captures the warmth and joy of breastfeeding in 13 enchanting portraits by Stanley Ong. Each of these portraits tell the breastfeeding story of a particular family. There is Ani de Leon Brown who breastfed her son Dash while preparing and finishing six full Ironman races. There is Thammie Sy, who has been on a breastfeeding journey for 11 years. Paula Peralejo Fernandez experienced wounds, imperfect latches, and inflammations, prompting her to say that breastfeeding has been the most challenging part of motherhood thus far.
The beautiful portraits of Iya Villania Arellano, Rima Ostwani, Alexa Gutierrez, Janice Lizardo, Eizza Lim de Baron, Kaity Bato, Jaya Crisostomo, Ruth Galang, Em Sulit, and Charissa Villanueva are also part of the exhibit.
Mommy Mundo's partners in The Nearness of We: A Breastfeeding Exhibit by Stanley Ong include School of Styling, Mommy Treats, Lumix, The Podium Mall, and SM Aura Premier.
