A Visual Poem to Motherhood


Maude Arsenault is a Canadian photographer and curator. Her work is geared towards the investigation of “woman in the context of domesticity and intimacy.” Her photo book titled, “Entangled,” explores models of feminity. As a woman, brought up in a progressive home, and now a mother herself, her thoughts gather around the concept of what represents a “future young woman.”

“Entangled” is Maude’s visual poem to adulthood, and how culture preserves the concept of motherhood. She states, “I feel often trapped in the person I have been trying to be my entire life. Now I stand, shaky but alive, looking away at my world as a female with the best possible hope.”

Maude’s work was published in Vogue Australia, Nylon, and LensCulture. For more information about “Entangled,” check out
