I am so incredibly excited to share this conversation with Mercy Haruna with you today. Mercy is a portrait and documentary photographer dedicated to capturing the fleeting moments of family life. She focuses on stories that capture the beauty of the everyday as well as those that dive into deeper conversations about the realities of motherhood. Her latest project, Offspring aims to create space for Black mothers in the UK to share their stories related to the physical and psychological changes that come with the transition into motherhood. Mercy is so full of life and truth and her passion for her photography really shines through as we talk. And we really cover some ground today talking about topics from Mercy’s current projects, the self doubt we all feel as creatives, the importance of sharing the richness of life through her visual storytelling. I know this conversation will leave you with ideas for digging deeper into the meaning behind your photography & storytelling & I would love to hear your thoughts after you listen so share with us on Instagram tagging the podcast and Mercy.
