Motherhood from 50 years ago.

I ran across this article with beautiful images of mothers and their children when reading the Huffington Post.

Ken Haymen, the 83-year-old photographer found a box titled "Mothers," filled with beautiful images of women and their children when his former agent, Woodfin Camp, requested that he empty his contents from a closing storage facility.

He shot the series of photos for a Pulitzer-nominated book called Family, which he co-wrote with anthropologist Margaret Mead -- his former professor turned close friend. His website explains that she invited him to Bali when he started taking the photos, and he has now worked in over 60 countries.

Although Heyman published the photos almost 50 years ago, the mothers in the pictures are similar to their modern-day counterparts; laughing, multi-tasking, rocking and loving their children. Simply beautiful!
