Premature Babies In Before-And-After Portraits, By Red Méthot
Red Méthot, aka RedM, is a photographer from Québec and his latest series of portraits named “Les Premás” is absolutely touching.
His series of illustrations depicts children (and some adults too) who were born prematurely, with all the difficulties that implies, holding in their hands a black and white photography of themselves as newborns.
Seeing the before and after of these premature babies and what they have become shows how the road of life can be traveled after overcoming a tough start.
