Universal Motherhood: A journey through the lottery of birth

An exhibition by the Save the Children and GSK Partnership, created by Anagram.

Opening on Universal Health Coverage (UHC) Day, Universal Motherhood is a unique series of powerful, intimate photographs showcasing the universal experience of motherhood. The exhibition features work by world-renowned female photographers - Sian Davey, Bieke Depoorter, Diana Markosian, Carlota Guerrero and Dana Popa - and a light installation by artist Aphra Shemza. 

The five photographers documented live births from around the globe to create a striking visual collection which captures the raw emotion and intimacy of the first days of motherhood.

Light installation, ‘Seconds Pass’, reflects the fragility of young life, as the rhythmic pulsing of the lights is determined by data on birth and death rates of under-fives around the globe. Four children are born every second. One child dies every six seconds.
The GSK Save the Children Partnership - Save the Children and GSK are calling on all governments around the world to achieve Universal Health Coverage (UHC) by 2030. No woman should have to give birth without essential health services and no family should face financial hardship as a result.
