Hello, I'm Madalena, a photographer and
visual storyteller.

Below is a list of photographers, projects and books who explore the subject of parenthood in their very own way. I stumbled on most of them by reading various newspapers, magazines or blogs or simply by talking to friends about inspiring work. I have not worked with any of them or met in person. You can view this as my personal link collection to keep track of what’s happening in the world of photography on the subject of “family portraiture”
