Photographer Christian Berthelot captures the Raw Images of Birth

“Far from the clichés and platitudes, I wanted to show us, as we are when we are born,” photographer Christian Berthelot explains in his artist statement. Far from the pristine images of rosy-cheeked babies we’re often used to digesting, Berthelot’s raw photographs capture babies as almost alien creatures — naked, screaming and drenched in bodily juices.

Photos that capture From the Womb to the World are an exception where colour has more power and impact than black and white.  Blood is red.
