Happy Mother’s Day – Ashton Worthington’s photographic tribute to his mom

Posted in Uncategorized by K2Creative on May 10, 2013

With mother’s day quickly approaching, we wanted to make sure we took time out to give thanks to all the wonderful moms out there.  They spend their lives protecting us, worrying about us, teaching us how to love, how to cope, and how to succeed.  If we’ve learned anything by now, it’s that mothers are human – they make mistakes, they fall apart, they put themselves back together.  And they teach us to do the same.

To those who loved us first, against all the odds – today, we salute you.   Happy Mothers Day to all. 

Below, see photographer Ashton Worthington’s touching and personal homage to his mother, who passed away several years ago.

From Ashton:  After my mother passed away a few years ago, I was forced into the process of dismantling the physical remnants of her entire life. Such an intense experience – filled with incredible sorrow for the loss, but also joy – I felt I could understand her more as a complete person, not just as defined  in the framework of being my mother, and felt closer to her for it. For many years, she was a fiber artist – weaving, knitting, needlepoint, macrame, basket making, silk painting, and on and on. Her tools and materials contain such a tangible echo of her – the things you use and touch every day of your life – it’s almost as if they absorb some of your soul. I felt I had to document them as a portrait of and tribute to her.ashton_worthington_things1_21 ashton_worthington_things1_22 ashton_worthington_things1_23 11006_e_00029 11006_g_00042b 11006_h_00007_crop ashton_worthington_things1_20
