My mother took these two pictures of me on Polaroid. I love my mother a lot and I photograph her very often, too. It's a very important moment when I hear the release, it creates a noticeable connection between me and my mother, it's like the umbilical cord of an embryo in the womb. The sound of the release, that's my favorite sound, there lies the true magic.

Unfortunately I live in another city now and I see her very infrequently, but I keep the Polaroids in a box and look at them very often.
