Watermelons Are Not Strawberries
What can be more inspiring and resilient than listening to a five-year-old girl who spent her life until then struggling with severe multiple food allergies, saying that when she couldn't eat strawberries, she pretended that watermelons were strawberries? Moments like this kept Sandra Bacchi strong and positive while facing the shadows that came to the surface when she became a mother.
Watermelons Are Not Strawberries is a photographic memoir about the ups and downs of parenting and the surprising lessons about acceptance and healing we can learn from our children. The visual experience of moving from chaos to clarity is both vulnerable and relatable, giving the viewer a window into what it means to find peace and a little bit of hope.
